The team of experts at the USC Comprehensive Aortic Center is ready to work closely with you in the care of your patients with aortic disease.

The strong collaboration between our vascular and cardiothoracic surgeons and cardiovascular medicine specialists allows us to provide the most comprehensive care to our patients by treating the entire aorta. Our skilled physicians have performed hundreds of cases, and have been regional leaders in the development of endovascular aneurysm repair and thoracic endovascular aortic repair therapies. In addition to being at the forefront of endovascular technology, the Aortic Center is the largest referral center in Southern California for the evaluation and treatment of aortic emergencies, including ruptured aortic aneurysms and acute aortic dissection.

Because time is of the essence for most aortic patients, Keck Medicine of USC offers immediate access to lifesaving care for patients in need of emergent treatment through its Rapid Transfer Program. For more information or to refer a patient, please call (866) 65-AORTA (866-652-6782).

To further acquaint you with the USC Comprehensive Aortic Center, we have created The Leading Edge, a publication that explains our approach to care and services we offer.
