Aorta Center


Thoracic aortic disease affects the portion of the aorta that is in the chest and requires treatment from both cardiac and vascular specialists. Recognizing this approach, Guthrie formed the Aortic Center. At Guthrie, we offer accurate diagnosis and leading-edge treatments for patients with all types of aortic disease, including abdominal and thoracic. Our multidisciplinary team of vascular and cardiac surgeons provides a comprehensive and multidisciplinary care for patients with conditions of the aorta.

Our main goal is to evaluate patients and design a personalized treatment plan that decreases the risk of aneurysm rupture. Treatment is determined according to the severity and size of a patient’s abdominal aortic aneurysm and includes:

Advanced treatment options include:

  • Endovascular thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (stent grafts)
  • Open surgical thoracic aneurysm and AAA repair
  • Hybrid surgical/endovascular aneurysm repair
  • Aortic Arch reconstruction
  • Endovascular treatment for aortic dissection
  • Aortic bypass for occlusive disease
  • Treatment for aneurysms or occlusions of aotic branch vessels
