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

Vascular Screenings

Are You Eligible? 

Just because you don't have symptoms of vascular disease doesn't mean you aren't at risk. We offer screenings every week at Northridge Medical Park.

Eligible patients include:

  • Age 65 or older
  • Age 50 or older with cardiovascular risk factors
  • Adults 45 years or older and an abnormal finding would prompt modification of your lifestyle or medical care
  • Family history of abdominal aortic aneurysm 

Insurance doesn't cover screenings if you aren't experiencing symptoms. The out-of-pocket cost is $99 for all tests.
