Trans-Carotid Artery Revascularization (TCAR)

  • Faster recovery.

    You need surgery to reduce your risk of stroke, but you want a less invasive option with faster recovery. Consider TCAR at Carilion Clinic's Aortic Center. This innovative procedure typically has patients out of the hospital by the next day.

  • Safer surgical care.

    TCAR is a minimally invasive procedure that carries a lower risk of complications during surgery, and less post-operative pain during recovery than traditional open surgery. This safer surgical care option is available to patients with carotid artery disease. Find out if it is right for you.

  • Advanced care you deserve.

    The innovative TCAR procedure is not available everywhere. If your surgeon does not have advanced training and experience with minimally invasive procedures such as TCAR, consider a second opinion. At Carilion Clinic’s Aortic Center, you have an alternative.
