Aneurysms

Aneurysm Treatment

Aneurysms are caused by weakness in a blood vessel wall that creates a significant bulge in a blood vessel. The bulge can harbor blood clots and may rupture, causing major blood loss or death.

We can decrease and repair your aneurysm with these options:

  • Medication
  • Monitoring
  • Stent-graft repairs
  • Surgery, including minimally invasive techniques that only require a small incision to repair all kinds of aortic aneurysms.

3-D Imaging for Aneurysms

Our high-tech radiology suites provide 3-D images of aneurysms. These images help us determine the right treatment for you.

Vascular Screenings

Are You Eligible? 

Just because you don't have symptoms of vascular disease doesn't mean you aren't at risk. We offer screenings every week at Northridge Medical Park.

Eligible patients include:

  • Age 65 or older
  • Age 50 or older with cardiovascular risk factors
  • Adults 45 years or older and an abnormal finding would prompt modification of your lifestyle or medical care
  • Family history of abdominal aortic aneurysm 

Insurance doesn't cover screenings if you aren't experiencing symptoms. The out-of-pocket cost is $99 for all tests.
