Artery Disease

Artery Disease Treatment

We're a leader in the region at:

  • A specialized kind of angioplasty that clears arteries with wire inserts
  • Treatment of tears in the arteries, particularly the aorta. These types of tears can lead to blood loss and even death.

We're a leader in the country at:

  • Performing minimally invasive surgery, including angioplasty, to treat arterial disease
  • Using stent-grafts to treat aortic conditions

Experienced Vascular Surgeons Mean Better Outcomes

Research shows that patient outcomes are better at hospitals that perform more than 100 carotid endarterectomies a year. We perform about 120.

At UVA, we've been performing minimally invasive stenting (balloon angioplasty) for over 25 years. We repair blocked or torn arteries with:

  • Angioplasties and stents
  • Blood-clot removal and medications
  • Bypass grafts and surgical bypass
  • Mechanical devices
  • Endarterectomies
Care for Your Child

At UVA, our doctors are experts in the special kind of care children need.
