The Aortic Center at Maimonides provides an extensive range of services to treat aortic aneurysms and aortic dissections. Our cardiac and vascular surgeons work together in a state-of-the-art Hybrid Operating Room applying the most recent innovative hybrid approaches in order to provide the best outcomes for our patients.
As the only Aortic Center in Brooklyn, we understand that time is of the essence when treating aortic emergencies, making the team available on a 24/7 basis to ensure immediate care. We also provide continuous monitoring for our aneurysm patients who do not require immediate surgical intervention. This involves follow up office visits with the Aortic Center team to ensure appropriate medication management and a thorough physical examination. This watchful waiting approach includes evaluation of your most recent high technology CT and MRI Scans which are reviewed with the team.
Maimonides offers an innovative approach to the most recent techniques available for TEVAR procedures, including participating in national clinical trials, and being the first medical center in the nation to perform surgery using the latest GORE EXCLUDER® AAA Endoprosthesis device – a significant breakthrough in the repair of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms (AAA) in patients with challenging anatomies.
