WakeMed Heart & Vascular - Vascular Surgery & Peripheral Vascular practices are the perfect place for all of your vascular disease treatments and surgeries. Whether you have varicose veins, carotid disease or an abdominal aneurysm, you will find advanced care in an easily accessible comfortable setting.  Our physicians offer the most advanced technology and latest research to address any diseases affecting your arteries and veins.

Conditions We Treat:

  • Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD)
  • Peripheral Aneurysm
  • Varicose Veins
  • Blood Clot (thrombus)

Vascular disease is not only dangerous because it can lead to more serious problems, it's also uncomfortable and can restrict your ability to move freely. If you have pain in your legs or feet, or have poor circulation, you are not going to be able to do as much as you'd like. We will work with you on a healthcare plan and course of treatment that allows you to live a more healthy and active lifestyle.
