AorticProcedureThe Aortic Center at Ohio State has become a referral center for some of the Midwest’s toughest vascular conditions, including aneurysms, dissections and occlusion and re-operative surgery for failing endografts. “We routinely perform hybrid aneurysm surgeries using a combination of open and endovascular techniques, thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm repairs, aortic dissections and treatment of aortoiliac occlusive disease,” says Timur Sarac, MD, center director and division director for Vascular Diseases and Surgery. Jovan Bozinovski, MD, the center’s associate director, emphasizes that Ohio State “never hesitates to accept emergency cases from local or regional medical centers.”

Kristine Orion, MD, director of Quality and Patient Safety, Division of Vascular Diseases and Surgery, notes that, with an entire floor at the Ohio State Ross Heart Hospital dedicated to vascular medicine, “patients at the Aortic Center benefit from the world-class talents of board certified surgeons, a dedicated nursing staff, state-of-the-art operating rooms specifically designed for their needs and a team of experts with a deep understanding of aortic disease gained from an active research environment and clinical trials.”
