Aortic Aneurysm and Dissection
The management of aortic diseases has evolved to its own subspecialty over the last ten years predominantly due to the increased complexity of aortic problems and the increase in the number of patients who are found to have aortic aneurysms.
We are one of the few hospitals in the nation to offer an integrated approach for the care of patients with aortic disease. Our multidisciplinary team includes a collaborative effort between cardiothoracic surgery, cardiology, vascular surgery and radiology. We believe that it is crucial for us to share with you our approaches to aortic disease, our surgical results and trends as well as the use of our rapidly expanding database of patients that we follow from a medical and surgical standpoint on an annual basis.
Through our rigorous scientific approaches, state-of-the-art imaging techniques and dedicated staff we attain the highest level of medical care while maintaining a robust patient satisfaction.
