Abstract

American medicine is trending toward an increasing number of specialty care centers. Cancer centers, transplant centers, and sports medicine centers are only a few common examples. Vascular centers are relatively new entities that are forming for obvious reasons. As the general population ages, peripheral vascular disease has become more prevalent. Several types of medical, surgical, and radiological specialists are involved in the diagnosis and treatment of such patients. Creating multispecialty vascular centers is one method to focus expert care on the patient, to alleviate some of the turf battles between specialties, and to contain burgeoning Medicare costs.
