Jefferson University Hospitals

Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm

There are several different ways to treat an aneurysm depending upon your specific condition: through behavior modification, medication or surgery. Whatever treatment you require, Jefferson physicians provide the best comprehensive medical and surgical solutions for aneurysms.

Jefferson vascular surgeons are leaders in the diagnosis and treatment of all types of aneurysms, including the most complex aneurysms of the aorta. Using advanced minimally invasive surgical techniques, our physicians are able to treat you with safer alternatives to major, open surgery, which can speed recovery and reduce hospital stays.

The Jefferson Aortic Center brings together the expertise of nearly a dozen medical and surgical disciplines for diagnosis and treatment of thoracic aortic aneurysms (TAA). Our reputation for treating the most complex cases attracts referrals and emergency transfers from other hospitals throughout the Northeast.

In emergency situations, patients with potentially life-threatening thoracic aortic aneurysms are promptly evaluated using sophisticated imaging techniques.
