Vascular & Endovascular Surgery Division


Dr. Tracci performs a surgeryThe Division of Vascular & Endovascular Surgery team at the University of Virginia provides comprehensive, cutting edge care to patients with vascular diseases. We pledge to provide the highest quality care based on clinical standards and novel therapies rooted in research and outcomes study while maintaining respect and compassion for our patients and their families.

We have tremendous and broad experience in managing problems of the blood vessels.  These range from peripheral artery disease, carotid artery stenosis, mesenteric and renal artery disease, arterial and aortic aneurysms through arterial and aortic dissection. We care for patients with venous disorders such as varicose veins and venous insufficiency. We also have expertise in rare and complex entities such as thoracic outlet, vascular compression syndromes, and non-atherosclerotic arterial diseases such as endofibrosis in athletes. We offer advanced techniques of vascular surgery including angioplasty, intra-arterial stents, minimally invasive surgery and fenestrated endografting.

Our doctors are among the best in the country, trained in the spectrum of open surgery and endovascular, minimally invasive techniques to treat diseases of the arteries and veins. We provide state-of-the-art care technologies, are actively engaged in numerous clinical trials and take pride in our vascular and endovascular surgery educational programs.

Clinical Programs

UVA Surgery procedureOur clinical programs provide comprehensive diagnostic, endovascular and surgical treatments for diseases of the arteries and veins. The vascular and endovascular surgery team at UVA begins with our Heart and Vascular Center (HVC) Surgical Clinic where, in conjunction with our surgeons, the nurse clinicians, physician’s assistants and vascular diagnostic laboratory review and care for each patient individually. The need for medical management, or surgical intervention is determined and all care coordinated. When intervention is recommended our award winning team in the hybrid operating rooms, and on our HVC inpatient units are there for you. Most patients with vascular diseases require longitudinal care, regardless of need for operation. We greatly enjoy and excel at monitoring you periodically.

Innovation is at the core of  vascular and endovascular surgery. The UVA Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery is at the forefront of innovative technology striving to advance and improve patient care. We offer state-of-the art therapies with minimally-invasive endovascular techniques. We continue to research ways to improve patient safety and outcomes in these procedures.

The Aortic Center’s multidisciplinary team offers customized patient-centered treatment options for patients with a variety aortic conditions. This includes the latest in fenestrated and branched endograft devices. We continue to research way to reduce and potentially eliminate radiation exposure during complex endovascular aortic procedures. Currently, endovascular aortic surgery is performed using two-dimensional grayscale fluoroscopic images, innovative augmented reality and electromagnetic tracking systems technology are being used to reduce radiation exposure and advance care of patients with aortic disease.

We are beginning to look at using these technologies for procedural image guidance in a way that may someday eliminate the need for radiation all together to perform minimally invasive, complex vascular procedures.
