Williamson Medical Center is one of a select few medical centers in the southeast offering FDA-approved fenestrated endografts for complicated abdominal aortic aneurysm in Franklin TN.
So, what exactly is that and why do you care?
An aneurysm is a ballooning or enlargement of a blood vessel due to weakness in the wall. If untreated, this can lead to a life-threatening rupture. Modern technology allows us to spot an aortic aneurysm before it ruptures and repair it with surgery.
A new procedure we perform at Williamson Medical Center allows for minimally invasive repair of complicated Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm in Franklin TN that are high risk due to the aneurysm’s proximity to the kidney and intestinal arteries for conventional stents.
