Information for physicians wishing to refer a patient to UNC Vascular Surgery
Welcome to the Division of Vascular Surgery at the University of North Carolina. As colleagues in care, our interest is to support the optimal treatment for patients you refer to us in consultation, as well as those that become our mutual patients. By combining our research efforts with medical, endovascular and surgical therapies, we provide the most advanced treatment options for patients with vascular disease.
We have expertise in all areas of vascular disease and perform a full range of services including peripheral vascular laboratory studies, wound care and limb salvage, open surgical procedures, endovascular interventions, and overall vascular care. As vascular surgeons with advanced endovascular skills, we can evaluate each patient to determine whether medical, endovascular, or surgical treatments are most appropriate. We have the ability to enroll patients into one of the many ongoing clinical trials we are participating in.
We are also dedicated to patient as well as physician education, hosting a weekly vascular conference and a yearly symposium in Pinehurst, NC.
The UNC Endovascular Institute is dedicated to offering the most advanced minimally invasive treatments to patients with all varieties of vascular disease including thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysms/dissections, peripheral arterial occlusive disease, mesenteric and renal artery disease, and cerebrovascular disease.
UNC’s Wound Healing and Pediatry is a multidiscipline center established to bring several specialties together to provide coordinated, efficient, and effective care to patients with lower extremity wounds. The center’s staff includes vascular and endovascular surgery, orthopedic surgery, diabetic care, podiatry, physical and occupational therapy, and rehabilitation.
There have been many developments in minimally invasive techniques for the treatment of superficial and perforator venous disease.
Treatments are based upon DOQI (Dialysis Outcomes Quality Initiative) guidelines and the use of native vessel fistulae when possible.
