Aortic Institute opens specialty center for patients with aneurysm disease
The Aortic Institute, one of the first formally designated centers of its kind and one of the largest centers in the world for clinical care of patients with aneurysms, has a new facility and location on the third floor of the Clinic Building, 789 Howard Ave. The multidisciplinary specialty institute is an active center for clinical care, basic science and clinical research in aortic disease.
Led by John Elefteriades, MD, and Sandip Mukherjee, MD, the medical team is composed of an aortic nurse specialist, research director, epidemiologist, medical students, residents and visiting attending staff, as well as clinicians from other specialties.
"Putting all of these specialists together in a single center provides patients with access to the most advanced technologies for diagnosing and treating aortic aneurysms," said Dr. Elefteriades.
The institute's new home includes a main reception and waiting room, physician offices, two examination rooms, a nursing workstation and a conference room.
