South Valley Vascular Mission Statement
At South Valley Vascular, our mission is to provide the highest quality vascular care and 5-star surgical care to the communities of the Southern San Joaquin Valley (Tulare, Kings, and Southern Fresno Counties).
Who we are
South Valley Vascular began when Dr. Campbell moved to Visalia in 2005 to start a vascular surgery practice. His goal was simple: to build a medical practice specializing in the care of the patient with vascular disease. Dr. Campbell’s practice grew significantly, and in 2007, he was joined by Dr. Araim. As the practice continued to grow, Drs. Campbell and Araim formed South Valley Vascular Associates in 2011. As the practice grew, we saw the need for specialized vascular care in other nearby communities, such as Hanford, Exeter and Porterville. In 2011, we were fortunate to have Phillip Myers PA-C join the practice after many successful years at the Lindsay Rural Health Clinic. Under the guidance and supervision of our vascular surgeons, Phillip specializes in the office based evaluation and treatment of patients with vascular disease. In 2013, Dr. Mack joined South Valley Vascular, and the practice has continued to grow since then.
South Valley Vascular provides vascular surgery services at all local hospitals including Kaweah Delta Medical Center, Adventist Medical Center in Hanford, SierraView District Hospital in Porterville, and Tulare Regional Medical Center in Tulare. Our main office is located in Visalia, and we recently opened our new office in Porterville. In addition, our doctors staff clinics in Hanford, Exeter, Tulare and Selma. As our practice continues to grow, we will continue to work with our local clinic networks to establish locations that are convenient for our patients.
What we do
What is vascular disease? What does a vascular surgeon treat? Simply stated, a vascular surgeon treats diseases of the arteries and veins, with the exception of the brain (neurosurgeon) or the heart (cardiologist, cardiac surgeon). What conditions does a vascular surgeon treat?
- Peripheral artery disease (PAD): blockages in the arteries of the legs, that lead to leg pain, and foot ulcers.
- Varicose veins: from cosmetic spider veins to painful, ulcerated varicosities of the legs.
- Carotid Artery disease: blockages in the arteries of the neck, that may cause a stroke.
- Abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA): Surgical and endovascular treatment of the aneurysm to prevent continued growth and rupture, which may be catastrophic, and
- Dialysis access care: for patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD)
- Angiogram: a series of X-rays taken of the arteries after an injection of contrast dye, making the blood vessels visible.
- Ultrasound: to examine the arteries and veins of the legs. We also perform ultrasounds for patients with carotid artery disease, aortic aneurysms, and patients on dialysis.
