Am I a candidate for aneurysm repair?
Not all aneurysms are life-threatening, however, if they increase the size can lead to a rupture. We recommend you to refer to one of our professional doctors for an evaluation to determine if you are a candidate for surgery.
Which kind of surgery do I need?
Depends on the aneurysm, some patients might not be eligible for a minimally invasive surgery at all.
How do I prepare for the procedure?
Your specialist will perform an examination to learn about your medical history. You will be asked to stop taking some medications and avoid eating after midnight before your surgery.
What happens after the procedure?
You’ll be taken to a recovery room right after surgery. On both procedures, you’ll be placed in the intensive care unit for a couple of days. Your doctor will provide you with a guide to make lifestyle changes.
How long will recovery take?
Open surgery requires longer recovery times; it takes at least 6 weeks before you can return to work. On a minimally invasive procedure, you need a shorter recovery, as no large incisions are made, often taking only weeks.
