At the Heart & Vascular Institute, we address the entire vascular disease spectrum. Our approach draws on the multidisciplinary breadth of our expert team, which includes specialists in broad-spectrum vascular medicine as well as diagnostics, interventional treatment, endovascular therapies, vascular surgery, wound care and rehabilitation. This comprehensive, integrated approach provides you with the most thorough and effective vascular care available.
Diagnostics & Accredited Labs
Staying at the forefront of technology and serving our patients in nationally accredited labs allows us to offer the benefits of accuracy, speed and exceptional quality. Protocols ensure the most appropriate and effective level of testing to assure cost effectiveness as well as diagnostic value.
Non-invasive vascular diagnostic procedures require specialized technologists to ensure the highest quality examinations. Our professional technologists are credentialed through the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (ARDMS), which administers the Registered Vascular Technologist (RVT) credential. The RVT credential is the only credential endorsed by the Society of Vascular Technology for those performing non-invasive vascular testing.

The Heart & Vascular Institute at Meriter offers the area's most advanced peripheral vascular program through a unique collaborative approach. Our cardiologists, radiologists and vascular surgeons evaluate and treat patients with arterial blockages through a comprehensive spectrum of services from minimally invasive intervention to traditional vascular surgical services.
