Open Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair (AAA)
An abdominal aortic aneurysm is a ballooning in the wall of the largest blood vessel in the abdomen. The aneurysm is prone to rupture if it grows larger than two inches in diameter. During this procedure, the abdominal segment of the aorta is replaced with a prosthetic tube graft through an open incision. This procedure requires general anesthesia. The hospitalization period is 5-7 days and full recovery can take a few weeks. Our surgeons’ outcomes are among the best in the country.
