Medical Director (Dr. El Sergany)
Pacific Vascular Institute (PVI) is Hawaii’s first outpatient interventional vascular center offering the most advanced, minimally invasive procedures. Our goal is to improve blood circulation and the quality of life for those suffering from peripheral vascular disease (PVD).
To reduce the rate of amputations in the state of Hawaii by 50% in 3 years
- In the United States, there are approximately 100,000 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]
- After a major amputation, half of those patients will have their other limb amputated within two years
- The five-year mortality rate associated with diabetic lower extremity amputations is GREATER THAN all forms of cancer
How we will achieve our Mission:
- Increase awareness of peripheral vascular disease in the medical community and the general population
- Emphasize the importance of early detection through non-invasive screening and monitoring
- Emphasize the importance of foot health and wound prevention
- Expand access to vascular experts across the Hawaiian islands utilizing Telehealth and other technologies
- To support local healthcare organizations in cardiovascular disease education, prevention and management
- Develop a coalition of healthcare experts working together to provide the latest technologies procedures and approaches in the management of peripheral vascular disease
- Improve overall health and activity in those with PVD and associated
Our medical team are among the most experienced and qualified experts in treating vascular diseases. We specialize in minimally invasive procedures with the goal of improving activity and lifestyle while reducing the progression of severe vascular disease and the need for amputation.
