Our Vascular Team

A partnership of unmatched knowledge and expertise from Virginia’s top hospital.

VCU Health’s medical staff at Baird Vascular Institute reflects fresh thinking about a collaborative approach to vascular care. VCU Health Medical Center’s Division of Vascular Surgery and Department of Radiology joined forces to create Central Virginia’s only academically based vascular center. We’ve brought together leading interventional radiologists and vascular surgeons to provide the Greater Richmond and Central Virginia region with the best in vascular diagnosis and treatment. Together, they offer area patients and referring physicians a level of medical expertise, experience and knowledge usually found only in a major academic medical center, as well as the most advanced technologies and facilities to support their work – all in a convenient outpatient setting.

Our on-site manager and experienced support staff are dedicated to making your experience with us as easy and convenient as possible.

Feel free to contact us directly with any questions you may have by calling (804) 828-2600.
