Our services

Novant Health Heart & Vascular Institute – High Point brings remarkable care for cardiac and vascular and vein concerns to patients in and around High Point, North Carolina. Whether you are in need of vascular testing to investigate a circulatory, vascular or cardiac concern, or a procedure to address a condition involving the heart, blood vessels or veins, you can get the care you need close to where you live.

Many vascular laboratory tests can be completed in our clinic, including:

  • Carotid duplex scans (to examine how blood is flowing through the carotid arteries in the neck)
  • Venous duplex scans (to examine the veins that return blood to the heart; can show blood clots or reveal issues causing varicose veins)
  • Arterial duplex scans (to examine blood flow in the arms and legs)
  • Bypass graft duplex surveillance (to assess blood flow after a bypass graft is completed on a vein)
  • Iliac artery duplex scan (to examine function of arteries in the lower abdomen)
  • Aorta duplex scan (to examine the function of aorta, the main artery in the abdomen)
  • Mesenteric duplex scan (to examine blood flow to the liver, spleen, stomach and intestine)
  • Renal artery duplex scan (to examine blood flow to the kidneys)
  • Echocardiograms (an ultrasound of the heart; can be done with or without physical activity)
  • Vascular ultrasound (a test using sound waves to examine blood vessels)
  • Treadmill testing (to assess heart function during activity)

Should you a need cardiac or vascular surgery, our providers will work with you to explain your treatment options and determine which is best for you. Cardiac procedures our providers regularly complete include:

  • Open heart surgery (to address issues related to the structure and function of the heart)
  • Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG; used to treat coronary artery disease by routing blood around a narrowed portion of an artery)
  • Heart valve replacement/repair
  • Minimally invasive mitral and aortic surgery (to repair the mitral valve and/or aorta)
  • Surgery to address atrial fibrillation (AFib; irregular heartbeat)
  • Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR; minimally invasive procedure that addresses an aortic valve that does not open correctly)
  • Coronary and peripheral angioplasty and stenting (to open blocked blood vessels using a balloon)
  • Cardiac catheterization (a procedure in which a thin tube is inserted into an artery or vein and threaded through blood vessels to your heart; used to diagnose or treat cardiovascular conditions)
  • Cardiac ablation (a procedure to destroy tissue causing an abnormal heart rhythm)
  • Placement of cardiac devices including loop recorders, pacemakers, implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs), and inferior vena cava (IVC) filters

Vascular/vein procedures include:

  • Traditional and minimally invasive vascular surgery
  • Arterial surgery (to fix or bypass a blocked artery)
  • Venous surgery (to fix or remove a vein)
  • Thoracic aortic aneurysm repair (surgery through the chest to repair the aorta)
  • Surgery for thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysms (weaknesses in the major blood vessel that supplies blood to the body)
  • Treatment for spider veins and varicose veins, including injection sclerotherapy, saphenous vein ablation and ambulatory phlebectomy
  • Treatment for suspected or confirmed deep vein thrombosis (DVT), May Thurner syndrome and post-phlebitic syndrome (after blood clots)
  • Carotid surgery or stenting including extracranial revascularization surgery (to addresses blockages in or other problems with the carotid artery)
  • Treatment for IVC filters (filters placed in the interior vena cava to prevent blood clots from entering the lungs)
We also offer ongoing care for arterial and venous disorders, as well as cardiac monitors and device checks.
