Aortic Surgery

Mount Sinai Heart is recognized worldwide for its surgical treatment of aneurysms – a leading cause of death and disability. The Department of Cardiovascular Surgery at Mount Sinai has had a longstanding interest in the disease and surgery of the thoracic (chest) and thoracoabdominal aorta, as the first series of aortic arch operations was published in 1975 by Randall B. Griepp, MD. Our distinguished team, led by Allan Stewart, MD, continues this tradition of research and advanced care, focusing on all aspects and stages of aortic aneurysms. This has translated to significant benefits for patients, as the outcomes of aortic surgery at Mount Sinai Heart have consistently been the benchmark for other programs worldwide. Read more
