Heart and Vascular Care
A team dedicated to your care.
At Sharp, our doctors are pioneers in the field of innovative endovascular treatments. For more than 30 years, our team of experts has performed complex, minimally invasive procedures to treat aneurysms, or enlarged arteries caused by weakening of the artery wall.
Advanced technology sets us apart from the rest.
Sharp's endovascular surgeons are skilled in advanced procedures to treat the most complicated aneurysms. Our team of experts will assess your aneurysm and first determine if it can be treated with medication to lower blood pressure and relax blood vessels.
If the aneurysm is at high risk of rupturing, our skilled doctors will perform the minimally invasive surgery best for you:
Our doctors are practiced in a newer approach, called an endovascular repair, in which a graft is inserted and fastened to the weakened artery through a small incision in the upper thigh. With this method, you will experience a quicker recovery and less scarring.
Fenestrated stent graft surgery
At Sharp, we make every effort to ensure that you have a quick and comfortable recovery. In fact, Sharp Grossmont Hospital is the only hospital in San Diego County to offer an innovative procedure called fenestrated stent graft surgery to repair abdominal aortic aneurysms. This less invasive approach allows you to return to your life as soon as possible — recovery time is typically one week, compared to three or more months after undergoing open surgery.
Our experienced surgeons are skilled in both cutting-edge and conventional treatments. They have performed countless open-surgery procedures, in which the chest or abdominal cavity is opened and the damaged section of the blood vessel is replaced with a graft.
