The Aortic Surgery Center

University Hospital Aortic Center - The Area’s Most Advanced Therapies

The Aortic Surgery Center at University Hospital provides the most advanced care for the diseases and conditions that affect the aorta - the body’s largest artery. Aortic disease poses significant health risks and include aneurysms (focal dilation of the aorta), dissection (a tear in the wall off the aorta), and blockages associated with PAD (peripheral arterial disease).


The Aortic Surgery Center at University Hospital is a critical resource for all of northern New Jersey. The Center is staffed by a team of experts dedicated to the care and treatment of patients requiring these specialized therapies. These physicians and clinicians are dedicated to providing the region’s best care in a patient-focused environment. Cases are discussed in a multidisciplinary fashion among experts from all related specialties to entertain all options and discussed with our patients to provide the best option for each individual patient.

Aortic procedures performed at University Hospital by our team of vascular and cardiothoracic surgeons combine cutting-edge surgical technology with the most sophisticated endovascular techniques available, often treating patients referred from other hospitals for advanced endovascular and open therapies available at only a few centers.

Patients treated with endovascular therapies experience:

  • Shorter procedure times
  • Reduced need for ICU care
  • Less risk of infection
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Faster recovery

University Hospital’s vascular and cardiothoracic surgeons are leaders in the endovascular repair of aortic disease and are recognized for their ability to perform complex open surgical procedures. We participate in clinical trials to offer our patients the cutting edge technology that may not be available elsewhere for years.
