What to Expect
In our clinic, we bring a combined staff of providers to our patients so that they may address many different concerns in just one visit, including medical signs and symptoms, social needs and emotional support, and financial challenges related to the cost of care..
We can usually complete a full evaluation in only one or two visits, which is especially convenient for individuals and families traveling from a distance. This includes evaluations for advanced therapies such as endovascular repairs or hybrid procedures, which require multiple provider consults and tests. We also offer shorter, follow-up visits for patients followed on a regular basis.
At the Aortic Center, you will meet a diverse medical team with strong backgrounds in multiple specialties. During your visit, you will meet with one or more of the following physicians, along with a physician's assistant or nurse practitioner. Your medical history and current health will be reviewed, and a physical exam will be performed. At the end of your visit a treatment plan will be discussed (see below).
Individuals being evaluated for aortic problems within the chest will meet with a cardiac surgeon. This surgeon will evaluate the patient's candidacy for surgery and review the details of the procedure.
Individuals being evaluated for aortic problems in the abdomen will meet with a vascular surgeon. This surgeon will also evaluate the patient's candidacy for surgery and review the details of the procedure.
Individuals that have aortic problems that are best treated without open surgery will also meet with an interventional radiologist. This physician will explain the less-invasive options for treatment.
Individuals being evaluated for any type of aortic problem will usually need to be evaluated for other associated cardiovascular diseases. The cardiologist will describe the other potential problems, including possible familial or genetic causes for the aortic disease.
Recommendations and Treatment Plan
After each visit, you will be given recommendations and a treatment plan will be outlined. Your next follow-up appointment and any necessary scans will be scheduled. For patients being evaluated for advanced therapies, a final recommendation will be provided after our monthly multidisciplinary team meeting.
