PATIENT TRANSFER

We are on call 24/7 to receive acute aortic emergencies in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.

​​

Innovative detection:​

Until recently, thoracic aortic disease was diagnosed only after an emergency occurred, with limited treatment options. Using advanced technology and innovative imaging techniques, the disease can now be detected earlier in the disease process, allowing for:
  • Application of medical management therapies prior to considering surgical intervention
  • Reduction of number of patients requiring surgery
  • Expansion of options for surgical candidates
  • Reduction of acute events and complications
  • Improvement of both the quality of care and long-term results
  • Utilization in advanced techniques beneficial for patient safety and improved outcomes​​​
