Northern California Vascular Study Group

NCVSG LogoJoin your Northern California Vascular Study Group peers in the VQI.

We are a group of hospitals and vascular specialists in Northern California  who have committed to collecting, sharing, and analyzing data related to vascular interventions and outcomes.

Our goal is to improve outcomes for our patients and to explore the factors that predict the best outcomes. We take advantage of the rapidly accumulating data that comes from collaboration with other interested groups.

The Vascular Study Group of New England, and more recently other Regional Quality Groups, have shown us how much can be accomplished with such a regional collaboration.

If you perform vascular surgery or other vascular interventions and work in Northern California, we would be delighted to talk with you about joining the NCVSG.

I would be happy to hear from you by email at
