Complex Aortic Program – Heart & Vascular Surgeons | MedStar Health

Heart and vascular surgeons teaming up to treat conditions of the aorta

Our Complex Aortic Program brings together surgeons from our Cardiac Surgery and Vascular and Endovascular programs.

This team of specialized experts cares for patients with complex aortic conditions who are referred from across the mid-Atlantic region. We often can find a minimally invasive, or endovascular, treatment for patients with these complex aortic conditions, even if they’ve been told they can’t have surgery. Our specialists can offer some patients a hybrid approach, which combines traditional open surgery with the latest minimally invasive techniques. We perform more hybrid aortic repairs than any other program in our area.
