Center for Aortic Aneurysm Surgery



Patients who choose or are referred  to Central Baptist’s Center for Aortic Aneurysm Surgery are treated by highly respected and skilled surgeons and staff, resulting in outstanding patient care and outcomes.

The Center for Aortic Aneurysm Surgery offers cutting-edge solutions for patients diagnosed with: 

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA)
Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm (TAA)
• Emergent Aortic Aneurysm Rupture or Dissection
• Acute Limb Ischemia

AORTIC ANEURYSM
Aortic aneurysms can sometimes be difficult to diagnose and manage and often require immediate intervention to prevent dissection or rupture. Central Baptist Hospital has the region’s first dedicated center for aortic aneurysm treatment, which means patients have access to the most advanced treatment options delivered by our expert team of healthcare providers.

PATIENTS AT RISK
• Males 65 and older
• Smokers
• Hypertension
• High Cholesterol
• Family History
• Chronic Lung Disease
• Genetic Predisposition

TREATMENTS
Medical Management
Screening, monitoring and aggressive management of the risk factors—such as high blood pressure—is our firstline therapy.

Minimally Invasive Endovascular Aneurysm Repair
A newer, minimally invasive procedure for the treatment of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) and Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm (TAA) may be indicated depending on the location, size and shape of the aneurysm. A catheter is inserted with a 3-D imaging system, and an endovascular stent graft placed at the site of the aneurysm to streamline the path of blood  flow.

Open Surgical Repair
A Central Baptist Hospital surgeon may recommend a surgical procedure known as open aneurysm repair, which requires an incision in the chest or abdomen, after which a graft is placed in the weakened portion of the aorta, sealing off  the  aneurysm.

TREAT WITH THE BEST
The Center for Aortic Aneurysm Surgery features our hybrid minimally invasive operating suite with state of the art imaging and capability for both minimally invasive and open surgical treatment. We are a Level One vascular center for acute limb ischemia and emergency treatment of TAA/AAA dissection or AAA rupture.

Our surgeons are leaders in minimally invasive endovascular aneurysm repairs. Our comprehensive approach has resulted in excellent patient outcomes.
