Our mission at CVI is to serve patients at risk for limb loss with a combined and collaborative 50-years’ experience in vascular intervention and wound care. Our goal at CVI is limb salvage/amputation prevention and we have repeatedly made positive differences in the lives of peripheral vascular disease and chronic wound patients and produced results with both efficiency and success unmatched by any other vascular practice in the Greater Atlanta area.
Dr. Douglas Redd, MD
Influenced by Andreas Gruentzig, the inventor of balloon angioplasty. Dr. Redd spent much of his career in academic, research-based medicine, holding assistant professorships at UPenn and Emory. He left the hospital system in 2005 to establish an outpatient vascular interventional medicine practice and has focused on the minimally invasive treatment of Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) for most of the past decade.
The Center for Vascular Intervention was established in response to the epidemic of PAD which is prevalent in metro-Atlanta and North Georgia. By performing highly advanced endovascular procedures below the knee and within the foot, Dr. Redd has become an expert in limb salvage and has prevented numerous patients from undergoing limb amputations. His vision of multi-specialty, holistic care for the treatment of Peripheral Vascular Disease is what makes the Center for Vascular Intervention uniquely positioned to offer patients with the critical limb ischemia complex endovascular treatment options for managing PAD with the goal of amputation prevention.

In order to honor and care for the veterans in our community, CVI is proud to be a community partner in the Veterans Choice Program, administered by TriWest Healthcare Alliance. The Veterans Choice Program is one of several programs through which a Veteran can receive care from a community provider, paid for by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). For example, if a Veteran needs an appointment for a specific type of care, and VA cannot provide the care in a timely manner or the nearest VA medical facility is too far away or too difficult to get to, then a Veteran may be eligible for care through the Veterans Choice Program.
