Excellent Outcomes and Dedicated Vascular Care. Ever Closer to You.

Wasatch Vascular Center provides minimally invasive outpatient treatments for dialysis access management, including PD catheter placement and remedy for other vascular conditions including varicose veins ablations, uterine fibroid embolization (UFE), treatment for varicoceles and peripheral artery disease (PAD). The center physicians also provide port and PICC placement procedures and embolization intervention for oncology patients in an outpatient setting.

Using a minimally invasive approach and the latest image-guided technologies, these highly trained vascular specialists provide alternatives to open surgical procedures with just a skin nick or small incision to achieve successful patient outcomes that allows for faster recovery and a quicker return to daily activities.

James G. Carlisle, MD, is a board-certified interventional radiologist and the medical director of the center and leads a team of physicians with expertise in interventional vascular management. The center’s goal is to deliver the best patient outcomes and experience possible, providing the highest level of individualized care for every patient, every day.

 

Vascular Care Has Evolved. It’s About Choices.

People living with vascular conditions don’t want overnight stays in the hospital, lengthy recovery periods and scheduling issues. They want to return to their daily lives quickly. Wasatch Vascular Center delivers a different healthcare experience; one that is invested in people, communication and best-in-class care.

Wasatch Vascular Center is committed to superior service and delivering far more. Patients can expect:

Prompt appointments For dialysis access management patients, Wasatch Vascular Center offers same day/next day appointments when at all possible, allowing a prompt return to scheduled dialysis treatments. Patients seeking treatment for other vascular conditions will experience convenient scheduling of appointments. At the center, patients avoid the complexities of a hospital admission and return home to recover that same day.

Exceptional patient care Patients encounter a team that is kind and respectful, never indifferent. Individual needs are accommodated to ensure patients are comfortable and kept well-informed.

Efficient and customized communication The team at Wasatch Vascular Center partners with your physician care team, focusing on coordinating your vascular care. Immediate post-procedure reports are sent to your referring physicians and comprehensive reports follow within 24 hours after the procedure.

Patient education Patients see us as partners working to find the best treatment to fit their individual needs in vascular care. Online and printed materials are vital components of the patient experience and help patients to be well-informed about their health and available treatment options.

Whether you are a current or a new patient, thank you for entrusting your vascular care to the experts at Wasatch Vascular Center.

Procedures Include:

Peripheral Artery Disease Treatment

Peripheral Artery Disease Treatment

This buildup—called plaque—narrows your arteries, often reducing or blocking the flow of blood. Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is most commonly seen in the legs, but also can be present in the arteries that carry blood from your heart to your head, arms, kidneys and stomach. Nearly everyone who has PAD­, even those who do not have leg symptoms, suffer from an inability to walk as fast or as far as they could before PAD. In all, PAD affects 8 to 12 million people in the United States, especially those that are 50 and older. If you are diagnosed with PAD, the sooner you are treated, the lower your risk of the disease progressing. Talk to James G. Carlisle about minimally invasive treatment options.

Varicose Vein Treatment

Varicose Vein Treatment

Varicose veins are chronic and recurrent conditions. The variety of treatments available does not offer a cure, but rather a control of the condition. Successfully treated veins cannot come back. However, your inborn tendency to develop new veins will not be cured by this or any other form of treatment. Wasatch Vascular Center treats venous insufficiency completely, removing all backward-flowing veins, making your treatment for varicose veins as thorough as possible.

We Offer the Following Services:

Uterine Fibroid Embolization

Uterine Fibroid Embolization

Have you been diagnosed with uterine fibroids? Don’t worry. They are extremely common and treatable. Uterine fibroids are benign tumors that develop within the muscular wall of the uterus. If you have uterine fibroids and are symptomatic, you have a choice in your treatment options. James G. Carlisle offers uterine fibroid embolization (UFE)—a proven, effective alternative to surgery to treat uterine fibroids, with less risk, less pain and less recovery time.

Learn More About Uterine Fibroid Embolization
Varicocele Embolization

Varicocele Embolization

A varicocele is a varicose vein of the testicle and scrotum that may cause pain, testicular atrophy (shrinkage) or fertility problems. Veins contain one-way valves that work to allow blood to flow from the testicles and scrotum back to the heart. When these valves fail, the blood pools and enlarges the veins around the testicle in the scrotum to cause a varicocele. As a treatment, urologists often suggest open surgical ligation, but James G. Carlisle can offer varicocele embolization, which is as effective as surgery with less risk, less pain and less recovery time.

Learn More About Varicocele Embolization
Pelvic Congestion Syndrome

Pelvic Congestion Syndrome

Pelvic pain can greatly impact your quality of life and make it difficult to work, sleep or move around. Pelvic pain may be caused by varicose veins in the lower abdomen or around your ovaries. Varicose veins that develop around the ovaries can be safely and effectively treated using a minimally invasive procedure. If you have been diagnosed and are suffering from pelvic pain, contact James G. Carlisle to schedule your personal consultation.

Port or PICC Line Placement

Port or PICC Line Placement

If you are receiving treatment such as chemotherapy, it may involve frequent injections and the need for accessible veins. A port or PICC placement can help make these procedures more comfortable for you, especially if your treatment requires frequent access to the bloodstream for medication delivery or blood withdrawal. Talk to James G. Carlisle about how you can spare your veins from frequent needle sticks.

Learn More About Port or PICC Line Placement
Hemorrhoid Embolization

Hemorrhoid Embolization

Hemorrhoid embolization is a minimally invasive treatment for internal hemorrhoids that offers long-lasting relief from rectal bleeding. Hemorrhoids form when abnormal connections are made between arteries and veins in the rectum. Embolization works by blocking these abnormal blood vessel connections, which eliminates the bleeding.
