Tests & Treatments

Trust the experienced team at UNC Health Caldwell for:

Endovascular Surgery

Whenever possible, your vascular surgeon will take a minimally invasive, endovascular approach to treat vascular diseases. With endovascular treatments, your doctor uses imaging technology to guide a catheter through your blood vessels to the area that needs attention. That means you may benefit from:

  • Less stress on your heart
  • Less pain or discomfort
  • Lower risk of complications
  • Smaller scar
  • Shorter recovery

In many cases, if you have an endovascular procedure, you’ll be able to return home the same day as your procedure. Ask your doctor what to expect for your surgery.

Advanced Hybrid Operating Room

When your doctor recommends a minimally invasive procedure or surgery to treat your condition, you may receive care in UNC Health Caldwell’s hybrid operating room (OR). This OR combines surgical technology and sophisticated imaging capabilities. It allows your vascular surgeon to perform endovascular procedures (inside the blood vessel) and, if necessary, switch to a more complex procedure in the same OR. You’ll benefit from the hybrid OR because it decreases your time in surgery and the need to schedule more than one procedure.
