About Us
Champion Heart and Vascular Center


Patients suffering from cardiovascular (heart and blood vessel) problems are usually sent for tests and treatments at the hospital, despite studies showing that they are more satisfied and comfortable when the procedures occur outside the hospital setting. That's why esteemed endovascular and heart specialist Dr. Ramaraj opened Champion Heart and Vascular Center. Convenient and more cost-effective than going to the hospital, these are local, office-based, top-notch endovascular suite, vein center, echocardiography, heart and vascular labs that offer world-class treatment right in your neighborhood. They are the only such facilities in Dunn and Henderson, North Carolina.

Dr. Ramaraj and Dr. Sheshadri had training and/or affliation with the following prestigious institutions- Yale University, Harvard Medical School, UCLA, Cedars Sinai Medical Center, Duke University, Virginia Tech, Weill Cornell Medical School and State University of New York Downstate Medical Center

Conditions Treated
At Champion Heart and Vascular Center, we treat almost every cardiovascular condition. Our primary areas of focus include:

 
  • Heart Disease

    Heart disease is any number of conditions (or even a combination) that affect the functioning or structure of the heart, and may result in a heart attack or stroke. Examples/types of heart disease include:

    Arterial Disease
    Also known as "atherosclerosis", this is when there is a problem with the blood vessels that take oxygenated blood from your heart to the rest of your body. The problem could be narrowing, hardening, or even a blockage. Most heart attacks and angina (chest pain) are caused by coronary arterydisease.

    Arrhythmias
    These are disorders that affect heart rhythm, making the heart beat too quickly, too slowly, or in a disorganized way — disrupting proper blood flow. 

    Structural Heart Disease
    These are abnormalities or defects in the structure of the heart — muscles, walls, valves, or blood vessels — that can be congenital (from birth) or caused by infection or aging.

  • Venous Disease

    This is any chronic condition related to diseased or abnormal veins (mostly blood vessels bringing blood back to the heart for oxygen), which can cause a number of problems, including:

    Varicose or Spider Veins
    These are veins that don't control blood flow properly because they have thickened, dilated, lengthened, or twisted. They can look like threads or web-like, or even look like clusters under the skin. 

    Leg Pain or Swelling
    You could be experiencing pain, heaviness, swelling, numbness, or itching in the legs, or your legs may feel easily "tired".

  • Other Conditions

    At Champion Heart & Vascular Center, we also treat:

    Uterine Fibroids
    These are benign or non-cancerous tumors in the smooth muscles in the uterus that may cause heavy or painful periods, frequent urination, pain/cramps, and can even make it more difficult to get pregnant.

    Pelvic Congestion Syndrome
    This is when women develop varicose veins in the lower abdomen, which can cause a dull, chronic pain.

    Varicocele
    These are varicose veins around one or more of a man's testicles.
