Our Practice
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, Oxford, Fuquay-Varina, and Henderson, North Carolina.

Dr. Ramaraj had training and/or affliation with the following prestigious institutions- Yale University, Harvard Medical School, UCLA, Cedars Sinai Medical Center, and Duke University

By a Champion for Heart & Vascular

Opening this innovative facility is just one way Dr. Ramaraj has always been dedicated to quality patient care. He is a Fellow of the American Society of Echocardiography ("FASE"), which recognizes exceptional practitioners with an extraordinary commitment to the field of cardiovascular ultrasound. This designation is considered the highest credential for echocardiology. He is also a Fellow of the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology ("FASNC")

He is a proud registered member of the Outpatient Endovascular and Interventional Society ("OEIS"). This means that every one of Dr. Ramaraj's patients and procedures is reported nationally, and the outcomes, peer-reviewed. Basically, Dr. Ramaraj's patients are getting the best care and treatment — better than what is offered at a hospital. All tests are administered according to the highest standards and patients receive a thoroughly authenticated report, which is reviewed by a board member certified in that area of expertise.
