The aorta, highlighted in blue, is the main blood vessel that carries blood from your heart to your brain and vital organs.
The Aortic Disease Center cares for patients who have conditions that affect their aorta, the main blood vessel that carries blood from your heart to your brain and vital organs. Some aortic conditions include aortic aneurysm and bicuspid aortic valve. Our services include management with medications, surgical repair, and genetic counseling when the condition runs in your family.
Expertise in Aortic Disease
We have a specialized team of cardiologists and surgeons, each with their own refined skills in treating aortic disease. You will benefit from their combined expertise and full range of technology.
Minimally Invasive Surgical Options
Our doctors are skilled in minimally invasive surgical options for aortic disease. These technologies are called thoracic endovascular aortic repairs. They access and repair the aorta using blood vessels rather than open-chest surgery.
Every patient with aortic disease is unique. Our doctors are innovative in determining the best possible surgical option for each patient, including those with complicated conditions. Our doctors may combine multiple surgical techniques in order to provide the best possible medical outcome.
Focusing on You
We strive to make every individual feel safe and comfortable. Each care provider listens attentively and takes time to answer your questions.
Genetic Counselor on Staff
Some diseases that affect the aorta can run in families. These include Marfan syndrome and familial aortic disease. We have a genetic counselor on staff who specializes in cardiovascular conditions that have genetic factors.
