Vascular Center

Each year, Vascular Center doctors perform more than:

  • 4,500 vascular studies
  • 700 major vascular operations
  • 1,600 diagnostic angiograms
  • 2,000 interventional procedures, such as angioplasty, vascular stent and aortic stent-graft placement and embolizations.

 

At UVA, you’ll learn the latest and most innovative diagnostics and treatments and work with a team of physicians, researchers, radiologists and other health professionals in providing the most advanced vascular care.

The depth of our expertise and use of new technology is something you won’t find at other nearby medical centers. Our doctors specialize in diseases of the two “great vessels,” the aorta and the pulmonary artery. We also perform more angioplasties (a procedure to widen narrowed or blocked blood vessels) of the superior mesenteric artery than anyone else in the country. And we treat more high-performance bicyclists than any other hospital in the country.
