1. We offer the very best expertise and knowledge of a prominent academic medical center, with a neighborhood feel.
Backed by the expertise of VCU Medical Center, as well as access to their full array of services, the VCU Baird Vascular Institute is the only academically based vascular center in Central Virginia.
The VCU Baird Vascular Institute relies on a unique team of interventional radiologists and vascular surgeons with state-of-the-art technology, to maintain our high standards of excellent care. We offer our patients a full suite of both traditional exams and new, cutting-edge procedures, to diagnose their problems quickly and efficiently, and to provide therapeutic interventions, if needed. Our patients receive the highest level of treatment from our experienced team of advanced radiologists and vascular surgeons.
2. We have the latest in technology and techniques to diagnose and treat vascular disease.
Vascular ultrasound is a noninvasive ultrasound method used in vascular screening to evaluate your blood circulation. A vascular ultrasound may also be called a duplex study since it combines traditional ultrasound and Doppler ultrasound. The screening exam does not require the use of needles, dyes, radiation or anesthesia. Ultrasound imaging uses a small transducer or probe, and ultrasound gel placed directly on the skin.
Using image-guided techniques, our interventional radiologists and vascular surgeons are able to diagnose and treat almost any vascular condition not related to the heart or brain.
3. We are easy to get to, with convenient parking
You no longer need to travel all the way downtown to take advantage of VCU’s world-class medical services. Easy to reach from almost any area of town, we are located just off Interstate 195 in the near West End at 205 N. Hamilton Street. BVI brings the expertise of VCU Medical Center to a convenient neighborhood setting.
4. We offer a variety of services under one roof.
Our patients have easy access to the full array of expert vascular screening and treatment services offered by the Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center.
Services include: vein care, port placement, dialysis access management, IVC/SVC filter placements, vascular ultrasound and peripheral vascular physiologic tests (PVRs, ABIs), vascular screenings, diagnosis and treatment, and diagnosis and treatment for narrowing of arteries in the legs, arms and other areas of the body.
5. We work hand in hand with your referring physician.

Our onsite manager is responsible to keep things running smoothly, and serves as a point of contact for any questions or issues that may arise.
