The North Shore-LIJ Center for Aortic Disease is a unique program focused on treating aortic disease, conditions of the body's largest artery. In addition to the full range of services offered by North Shore-LIJ Cardiovascular Services, the multidisciplinary team at the center is available around the clock providing patients needing elective procedures as well as the most complex and emergency care individualized to their specific case.
Conditions treated at the center include:
With "direct from any emergency room protocol," patients with the most severe emergency conditions can be directly admitted to the operating room where they can be treated immediately.
Because the center has been created to treat the full spectrum of aortic conditions, outcomes are improved, and delays in treatment are avoided. Patients are able to see a full team of medical staff - cardiothoracic surgeons, vascular surgeons, cardiologists, and radiologists - all in one location.
