Leading-Edge Surgical Techniques
University Hospitals Harrington Heart & Vascular Institute offers the latest surgical therapies for treatment of aortic conditions – some only available in select other academic medical centers nationwide – including complex aortic root reconstructions and surgical reconstruction of aneurysms.
Advanced Minimally Invasive Procedures
With expansive knowledge and expertise, The Aortic Center also offers minimally invasive therapies for appropriate patients that have been shown to result in shorter hospital stays, faster healing times, and fewer respiratory and cardiac complications.
Genetic Evaluation and Counseling
Since some aortic conditions can be hereditary, UH Harrington Heart & Vascular Institute has genetic counselors and cardiologists who specialize in cardiovascular conditions with genetic factors. Our team will help you determine whether any of your family members are at risk for developing an aortic condition. Family members who are at risk can be treated early and may be able to prevent life threatening issues.
Innovative Research & Clinical Trials
In addition to providing the latest treatments available, we continue to seek new and improved treatment options for aortic conditions. Through our research efforts, we are gaining a greater understanding of how these conditions occur so we can focus on early detection and intervention.
