About Vascular Centre

SDVC SingHealth-Duke NUS Vascular Centre

The SingHealth Duke-NUS Vascular Centre (SDVC) was established in February 2021 to bring together the strengths of healthcare professionals from different specialities across SingHealth institutions to provide seamless and holistic patient-centric care.

Our clinical sites are located at:


Vascular diseases relate to disorders of the arteries, veins and lymphatics. Conditions requiring specialised vascular care include:

  • Peripheral vascular disease
  • Aortic aneurysms / dissections
  • Haemodialysis access and central venous stenosis/occlusions
  • Varicose veins
  • Venous occlusive / thrombo-embolic diseases (Deep venous thrombosis/pulmonary embolism)
  • Vascular anomalies (vascular tumours, vascular malformations and complex vascular anomalies síndromes)

The care for a vascular patient is often complex. This usually involves coordination by the primary clinician to ensure the medical, clinical, wound, dialysis, rehabilitation care needs are taken care of.

Many of the conditions can now be managed by minimally invasive endovascular procedures without the need for open surgery and many of these endovascular techniques have become the standard of care. Several specialists including vascular surgeons, cardiac surgeons, interventional radiologists, interventional nephrologists, and interventional cardiologists perform endovascular procedures to treat these conditions. The management of vascular anomalies is multi-disciplinary that includes dermatologists, interventional radiologists, surgeons and haemato-oncologists in both paediatric and adult patients.

The Centre will collaborate with researchers and educators from SingHealth institutions and Duke-NUS to deepen knowledge in the causes of vascular diseases, drive innovation to find better ways to diagnose and treat conditions and ensure healthcare professionals have the skills they need to provide the best care for patients.
