Baptist Cardiac & Vascular Institute
In 1987, Baptist Cardiac & Vascular Institute emerged as one of the first clinical locations in the United States to employ a multidisciplinary team approach to preventing, diagnosing and treating cardiovascular disease. Today, the Institute houses state-of-the-art diagnostic, treatment and rehabilitation areas, as well as the most advanced endovascular suites in the world.
We've always believed in treating the cardiovascular system in its entirety, versus approaching care from a functional perspective that focused on either heart or circulatory, but not both. This treatment philosophy has now been, and continues to be, widely adopted by medical centers across the nation.
Meanwhile, Baptist Cardiac & Vascular Institute maintains an extraordinary position as a best-in-class resource for innovative techniques, new technologies and advanced research. Our physicians are known for having pioneered several breakthrough procedures, including stent-grafts for aortic aneurysms and carotid stents that are less invasive than traditional treatments.
