[QUOTE=retiredguy123;1680546]I can highly recommend Dr. Bundz as a general surgeon. I don't know anything about this aorta thing, but I would probably trust him to do it if he has that type of experience.[/QUO

I bet he would recommend a cardio specialist or a thoracic vascular surgeon.

When the did mine through the groin there was a cardio thoracic vascular surgeon assisting.......just in case they had to convert to open surgery.

Are you refering to an AAA or TAA? they are different animals. I have a TAA, found by accident and it is at 4.2 cm. Regardless of my local cardiologist's advice I got a second opinion from Dr. Beaver at Shands in Gainesville. He is a Thoracic surgeon. If mine grows to 5.5, that's where I plan on going. Their program does many more of this procedure than Mayo in Jacksonville. Good luck.

I had been tracking my AAA since 2017, and early this year it had increased in size to 5.7.
My procedure was performed by Dr Henry Veldenz he is a vascular surgeon with FHV health.
He has almost 30 years experience and I felt very confident in him.
My abdominal aortic graft stent was done trough the groin and it was performed at The Villages Regional Hospital.
He relocated his practice to TV about a year ago, and one of the
reasons he decided to move his practice here,
was the state of the art vascular surgery suite that TVRH has available to vascular surgeons.
