Overview

Duke vascular and heart surgeons evaluate and treat the serious conditions, such as aneurysms and dissections, that can affect your aorta. The aorta is the largest artery in the body; it distributes blood from your heart to the rest of your body. Whenever possible, our surgeons use minimally invasive techniques to treat aortic problems. Our goal is to minimize your risk of serious complications from aortic disease.
