Aortic Disease Treatment

At UVA, our aortic and artery teams work closely with referring physicians to determine your best course of treatment, from management to surgical intervention.

Our team of cardiologists, interventional radiologists and cardiac and vascular surgeons work together to make sure you get the most appropriate treatment options.

Leading Treatment Programs

Genetic Counseling

Genetic counseling offers guidance when you're at high risk for developing aortic disease. We'll help you understand your options at our Cardiovascular Genetics Clinic, located at the Heart & Vascular Center.

Research Pioneers

We welcome complex cases. Through our robust heart and vascular research,  funded by the National Institutes of Health, we lead multiple national clinical trials. Find out if you qualify for a clinical trial.

Advanced Facilities

With four state-of-the-art operating rooms, our treatment facilities allow for less-invasive procedures that combine complex open surgery with endovascular techniques.

Aortic repair surgery can support weak aortic walls and repair ruptured aneurysms. Our procedures earned the highest possible performance ratings by US. News & World Report. 

Aneurysm Treatment
