Innovative Vascular Solutions, Tailored to You.

At Carolina Vascular, we take a personalized, modern approach to your vascular health. With customized care plans ranging from targeted medical therapy and diet and exercise plans to minimally invasive procedures and traditional open surgeries, you can count on us for all your vascular needs.


Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD)

When the arteries that carry blood to the legs become narrowed or clogged with plaque, patients may develop Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD). A relatively common circulatory condition, its symptoms often are mistaken for signs of normal aging. Fortunately, the vascular surgeons at ARA Health offer minimally invasive procedures to clear away accumulated plaque, correct narrowing vein walls, and ultimately improve blood flow.


Surgery without scalpels.

Many conditions that once required open surgery can now be treated less invasively — minimizing trauma to the body and promoting quicker healing and better outcomes.



Providing innovative treatments for the head, neck, and spine, our neurointerventional surgeons are fellowship-trained and have more experience than any program in the southeast. Performing minimally invasive procedures to treat acute stroke, brain aneurysm, vascular malformations, vertebral compression fractures, and more, our techniques yield better outcomes and afford patients less pain, shorter recoveries, and fewer complications than traditional surgery. Find out today if a minimally invasive procedure is right for you.
