we are advanced

Community Vascular is Washington’s first outpatient Interventional Vascular Center offering the most advanced, minimally invasive procedures. Our goal is to improve blood circulation and quality of life for those suffering from peripheral Vascular disease (PVD).

our mission

Washington has one of the highest rates of amputations in the country. Amputations don’t just affect the legs, but also severely impact the quality of life and mortality.

We make it our mission to reduce the rate of amputations in the state of Washington by 50% in 3 years

how we achieve our mission

In the United States, there are approximately 150,000 non-traumatic lower extremity amputations performed for people with diabetes yearly — one every six minutes

In the U.S., diabetes-related amputation costs are approximately $3 billion/year [$38,000/amputation procedure]
4.3 billion have PVD.

After a major amputation, half of those patients will have their other limb amputated within two years.
82% have DM.
30x greater risk of amputation if DM.

 

The five-year mortality rate associated with diabetic lower extremity amputations is GREATER THAN all forms of cancer.
18.16% 5 yr mortality.
