Transforming Care for Aortic Disease | Penn Aorta Center

In this video, co-directors Joseph Bavaria, MD, and Nimesh Desai, MD, review the impetus for building the Penn Aorta Center and how the model of care is different.

 The newly-established Penn Aorta Center brings together the range of disciplines crucial to success: top cardio-aortic surgeons and vascular surgeons as well as experts in medical cardiology, imaging, genetics, and nursing. It adds new clinical programs, extends patient support, and enhances research efforts. And it makes lifelong care a clinical reality for every patient. Referring physicians now have an unparalleled resource and opportunity for collaboration.

To refer a patient, call the 24/7 provider-only line at 877.937.7366.
