Due to trauma, aging or congenital conditions, many people may develop an aneurysm — a weakened, bulging part of a blood vessel. Unfortunately, aneurysms don’t always have noticeable symptoms. But if an aneurysm ruptures, it’s a life-threatening emergency that can’t wait.
If you’re at risk of an aneurysm or have any signs of potential aneurysm, we’re here for you. Missouri Baptist Medical Center’s cardiac surgeons provide expert evaluation and treatment of all types and all stages of aneurysms. Depending on the size of your aneurysm, you may not need immediate surgery, but rather regular monitoring. We’ll explain all of your options and make sure you’re comfortable with your care decisions. Throughout the process, our team provides guidance and helps ease your concerns about selecting the best treatment for you.
