The Maryland Vascular Center at Maryland General
The Maryland Vascular Center provides comprehensive evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of vascular disorders through a multidisciplinary approach. Our staff is made up of board-certified vascular surgeons and nurses who work in partnership with each patient's primary care provider, cardiologist, podiatrist and nephrologist to provide individualized, patient-centered, comprehensive health care. We combine the most advanced diagnostic capabilities with the full range of treatment options for vascular disease.
The center features a full-service, non-invasive vascular laboratory that allows our doctors to identify, diagnose, treat and manage vascular diseases of the head and neck, extremities and abdominal organs accurately and painlessly. Most vascular diseases are chronic conditions that require long-term planning and management. The Maryland Vascular Center uses nationally recognized, non-invasive approaches to monitor vascular disease and measure the success of medical and surgical vascular treatments.
The Maryland Vascular Center is an affiliate of the Division of Vascular Surgery at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. The Center takes part in clinical, research and educational activities at the University. The Maryland Vascular Center also brings state-of-the-art clinical and non-invasive diagnosis, as well as cutting edge treatments, to the communities of West Baltimore by taking part in vascular screening and education programs within the community.
