Cleveland Clinic surgeons carefully monitor patients with aortic aneurysms to determine when surgery is needed. Elective surgery to repair aneurysms in the aortic arch is less complex than emergency surgery; however, the procedure requires expert care to achieve the best outcomes possible. Cleveland Clinic surgeons consistently perform a high volume of these operations with outcomes that are among the best in the world.
