Aorta Surgeons

The MUSC Advanced Aortic Surgery Program

Our Medical Team

The multi-disciplinary team of the Advanced Aortic Surgery Program works with each patient to create an individualized disease management plan. Our patients benefit from the close collaboration of excellent cardiothoracic surgeons, vascular surgeons, interventional cardiologists and interventional radiologists who are recognized aortic surgery experts -- often in a single appointment. At the same time, our team pulls in other experts in congestive heart failure, adult congenital cardiology and cardiovascular imaging to provide the best possible outcome for your condition.
