Vanderbilt Vascular Disease Program

The Vascular Disease Program at Vanderbilt University Medical Center treats blood vessel conditions anywhere in your body. We bring together a range of cardiovascular specialists — including vascular medicine and surgery experts — so you get the specific care you need.

Vascular Disease: Why Choose Vanderbilt

  • National recognition: Vanderbilt Heart and Vascular is among the top heart programs in the nation and the only top-ranked program in Tennessee, according to U.S. News & World Report.
  • Unique expertise: We have the only dedicated vascular medicine program in the region — including a nationally accredited vascular laboratory to ensure your accurate diagnosis. Our specialists are uniquely skilled to treat your condition, no matter how routine or complex.
  • Team approach: Our comprehensive care team includes cardiovascular medicine specialists, interventional cardiologists, vascular surgeons and heart surgeons. Their combined experience and insight mean expert care for you.
  • Personalized care: Our team works with you to personalize your treatment plan, whether it involves medication, diet and exercise changes, catheter procedures, surgery or just monitoring. We are available for all of your questions or concerns. You also can reach us through our secure online portal, My Health at Vanderbilt.
  • Innovative techniques: If surgery is your next step, you’re already at the right place. Vanderbilt surgeons use the least-invasive procedures to get the best outcomes. We have a history of pioneering innovative techniques, such as minimally invasive aneurysm repair. Even if you have a complex condition or complex anatomy and have been told your condition is inoperable, we can offer you advanced treatment and new hope.
  • Research and clinical trials: As the largest academic medical center in the region, we investigate new and better ways to care for patients with vascular disease. For example, we are continuously developing new procedures for aortic stent grafting. At Vanderbilt, you have access to promising new treatments before they are widely available.
