Vascular & Interventional Overview

Minimally Invasive Procedures. Maximal Results.

There are many reasons why the region's top physicians recommend Fairfax Vascular Center for their patients' procedures. Fairfax Vascular Center offers a broad range of minimally invasive procedures that are performed by our board-certified Interventional Radiologists on an outpatient basis. Unlike traditional open surgeries, these procedures often result in less pain, less recovery time and a quicker return to your normal activities. Fairfax Vascular Center is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) and the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) for vein centers. 

The Diagnostic Vascular Lab at Fairfax Radiological Consultants is fully accredited by both The Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) and the American College of Radiology (ACR) for the non-invasive testing of all peripheral arterial, extracranial cerebrovascular, venous and visceral diseases. Ultrasound is the imaging method used in studies and exams at the Diagnostic Vascular Lab. The lab is staffed by certified vascular (RVT) and ultrasound (RDMS) technologists.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all who cared for me when I came in for my port placement procedure. My husband and I were treated professionally and courteously (from check-in to being taken out to my car at discharge), but also with a sense of humor, which made me feel comfortable and cared for (it is true, laughter is the best medicine!). It was so helpful that the entire procedure was explained  to us along with visual aids.  We now have a better understanding how the port will work for my chemo.
