The Division of Vascular Surgery at the University of North Carolina has a long tradition of excellence in the diagnosis and treatment of all forms of vascular disease.

The specialty of vascular surgery has rapidly evolved over the past decade to include an ever-expanding number of minimally invasive procedures to treat vascular diseases. At UNC we have remained at the forefront of the development, testing, and utilization of these techniques. We strive to incorporate the pursuit of education and research with our overall mission to provide the very best in patient care.

Today, the division is recognized as one of the major vascular surgical and endovascular centers in the United States.
