Treatments We Provide

  • Active Monitoring

    If you have a known aneurysm, it can be monitored. Small aneurysms are less prone to rupture. They can enlarge over time, making them more likely to tear. Watching gives the chance for surgery to reduce the chance of rupture.

  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair

    There are two main surgical options to repair the damage caused by an abdominal aortic aneurysm: endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) and open abdomen surgery. These surgeries can be used to repair or prevent the rupture of an aortic artery.
