Conditions and Treatments
Listing of conditions and treatments for the Vascular Center.
We provide more services than any hospital in the region to treat conditions that affect the aorta, the largest artery in the body.
We have nationally recognized expertise in the repair of blocked or torn arteries (the blood vessels that transport blood away from the heart to the rest of the body).
We offer a full range of surgical approaches for blood vessels and nerves constricted by other parts of the body. Conditions we treat include thoracic outlet syndrome, median arcuate ligament syndrome, May-Thurner syndrome, popliteal entrapment and adventitial cystic disease.
Our treatments include building tissue slings, bypass grafts, removing blood clots and repositioning arteries and stenting. All of our treatments aim to be as minimally invasive as possible, relying on the research and experience of the region's top doctors.
Venous and Related Diseases
Our specialists also offer a variety of treatments for vascular malformations, lymphedema and venous insufficiency. Treatments options include ablation, bypass, laser therapy for birthmarks, thrombectomy, vein stripping and vein valve repair — all conveniently located in our Vein Clinic at Northridge Medical Park.
Sports-Related Vascular Disorders
At UVA, we provide specialized treatment for high-performance athletes with conditions caused by repetitive movement and a lot of exercise, including external iliac arteriopathy and effort vein thrombosis. We treat more high-performance bicyclists than any other hospital in the region and offer very specialized treatments, including anticlotting, thrombolysis and surgery.
We offer advanced radiology suites and national experts provide critical treatment for weak blood vessel walls.
