The UNC Comprehensive Vein Clinic takes an individualized approach to patient care. Because optimal therapeutic results depend on the accuracy of the initial diagnosis, our board-certified vascular surgeons, as well as vascular and interventional radiology (VIR) specialists, use state-of-the-art procedures in our Peripheral Vascular Laboratory such as ultrasound imaging and other non-invasive diagnostic modalities.
Our specialists take a conservative, non-operative approach to the initial management and treatment of most patients with venous pathology. Vascular and VIR specialists at UNC recognize the advantages of non-operative strategies as a first line of treatment and are happy to discuss the pros and cons of conservative therapies such as medical treatment or minimally invasive endovenous procedures instead of surgery when such options exist. The UNC Comprehensive Vein Clinic is part of the award-winning UNC Center for Heart & Vascular Care.
