Carolinas HealthCare System’s Sanger Heart & Vascular Institute’s expert team of vascular medicine physicians brings you specialized care for diseases affecting the arteries, veins and lymphatic system.
From prevention and diagnosis to minimally invasive treatments, we offer vascular care that’s advanced, comprehensive and convenient.
Aortic Disease and Aneurysms
We offer nation-leading, breakthrough care to repair and treat aortic aneurysms.
Stent Graft Repair
Our skilled surgeons perform stent grafting to replace damaged blood vessels with specially designed materials customized to give you the perfect fit, offering patients who have previously been denied surgery the chance for successful treatment.
Our expert surgical team was the first in the nation to implant a branched stent graft designed to repair thoracic aortic aneurysms, introducing a novel care approach currently available in only select locations around the country. As a less-invasive alternative to open-chest surgery, this procedure is especially beneficial for hard-to-reach aneurysms.
We’re one of only two centers in the state with a special treatment protocol for ruptured abdominal aneurysms. When a rupture occurs, we activate an integrated, system-wide protocol called ‘Code Rupture’ to give you the seamless care and expert treatment you need when it matters most.
