Dr. Charles Eichler is a specialist in both open and endovascular surgery.  He has devoted his career to the performance of complex operation involving all aspects of the arterial circulation including surgery of the aorta, carotid arteries, and the lower extremities.  

 

Dr. Eichler has extensive experience in lower extremity reconstruction for both claudication and limb threatening ischemia.  These procedures are performed as both open bypass or using the latest endovascular techniques.

 

Surgery for cerebrovascular insufficiency has been a keen interest.  Carotid  artery disease is frequently treated with medical management as well as the performance of carotid  endarterectomy when clinically indicated.

 

As a recognized local expert in hemodialysis access surgery he is a strong proponent of a fistula first philosophy.

 

Since joining the UCSF Faculty in 2000, Dr. Eichler has actively pursued his interest in clinical vascular surgery in large volume clinical practice.
