Abdominal aortic aneurysm care at Mayo Clinic
Your Mayo Clinic care team
Mayo Clinic doctors trained in blood vessel conditions (vascular specialists), blood vessel surgery (vascular and endovascular surgeons) and other health care providers work together as a team to provide coordinated, comprehensive care. This collaborative approach means the care team can often evaluate you and develop a treatment plan within two or three days.
Advanced diagnosis and treatment
Mayo Clinic health care providers use the most current imaging tests to accurately diagnose aortic aneurysms, including abdominal aortic aneurysms and thoracic aortic aneurysms. Tests may include ultrasonography, computerized tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and others.
