Aortic surgery is a specific area of vascular surgery, carried out by our specialist aortic team. The aortic team specialises in the treatment of aortic problems, such as an aneurysm (dilatation of the aorta) or a split along its length. We perform elective and non-elective (emergency) surgery and work closely with other specialists to get our patients back to full health.
The Royal Free London also runs the abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) screening programme for the five boroughs of North Central London. More information on aortic surgery and AAA screening.
