The Vascular Center of Excellence within the Tampa General Hospital Heart & Vascular Institute is committed to providing the highest-quality care to patients with vascular disease. Our team of board-certified vascular surgeons uses a combination of goal-directed medical therapy, traditional open surgical techniques and innovative, less-invasive endovascular techniques to create a treatment plan unique to each patient. Patients at Tampa General Hospital benefit from a collaborative, multi-specialty, patient-first approach to the management of vascular disease, with programs focused on:

  • Aortic Aneurysm and Dissection
  • Limb Preservation-Peripheral Arterial Disease
  • Hemodialysis Access and Chronic Vein Disease
  • Carotid Artery Stenosis
  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

The combined efforts of the Tampa General Hospital and University of South Florida physician groups have created the only Vascular Center of Excellence in the greater Tampa region. Our surgeons remain actively involved in cutting-edge clinical trials and research, serving as leaders and pioneers in our understanding of vascular disease management.

Because of our commitment to compassionate, evidence-based care, U.S. News & World Report has recognized Tampa General Hospital as “high performing" in Heart & Vascular care, meaning we are ranked in the top 10% in the nation for 2023-24. Our surgeons have established reputations as leaders in the field of vascular surgery on local, national and international levels.

World-class patient care, research aimed at defining best-practice guidelines and embracing innovative technology are the hallmarks of the Vascular Center of Excellence. At Tampa General Hospital and the Heart & Vascular Institute, we don’t practice medicine, we define it.
