About the Division

Duke vascular surgeons

Vascular surgery at Duke has a long reputation of excellence in the treatment of vascular disease, which affects millions of people each year.

We provide a wide spectrum of services in our state-of-the-art vein clinic -- from life saving procedures to treat trauma victims and ruptured aneurysms to elective procedures to prevent stroke, provide relief from claudication, and treat venous disease.

The latest therapies and cutting-edge minimally invasive endovascular treatment are offered by our experienced vascular team, which includes board-certified vascular surgeons, physician assistants, and vascular lab technicians. 

The Duke Center for Vascular Diseases offers a multidisciplinary team approach to combating cardiovascular and vascular disease. This collaborative effort provides expertise from Duke’s vascular surgery, cardiovascular medicine, and vascular and interventional radiology services.
