Heart and Vascular Center

Vascular Surgeons and Services at MUSC

MUSC offers the full spectrum of detection, monitoring and therapies for circulatory disorders, including arteriosclerosis, aneurysms and carotid stenosis, and advanced venous disorders. The MUSC vascular team focuses on non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures to detect and prevent vascular disease problems along with the full range of surgical options.

Comprehensive inpatient and outpatient vascular laboratories are accredited by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Vascular Laboratories. Resources include blood flow analysis techniques, ultrasound imaging and carotid duplex scanning to detect blockages in the carotid artery. Certified technicians and cardiovascular specialists  offer the highest level of quality and care.

MUSC was the first hospital in South Carolina to offer the abdominal aortic stent graft, an alternative treatment to traditional surgery for aortic aneurysms. This minimally invasive procedure vastly reduces recovery times. The team of vascular surgeons and cardiovascular specialists also uses minimally invasive procedures to treat other disorders, from renal hypertension and leg cramps, to internal bleeding and inoperable tumors.

$99 Peripheral Vascular Disease Screening

Don't find out the hard way--stop PVD before it stops you. PVD is often called "the silent killer" because people rarely experience symptoms until a catastrophic event such as a stroke or abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) rupture occurs. Common risk factors include leg pain when walking or exercising, diabetes, hypertension, excess weight, high cholesterol, history of smoking or family history of stroke or heart disease. Schedule your $99 PVD screening at MUSC today, now available at four convenient locations in downtown Charleston, North Charleston and Mt. Pleasant.
