Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Symptoms, Screenings, and Treatment in Manhattan

 Manhattan Physician Recommends Screening for Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms

 

As your New York Doctor Dr. Gafanovich can explain more fully about Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms during your routine physical exam and why, perhaps, you may be a candidate for this procedure.

Essentially, Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms (AAA) occur when the lining of the aortic blood vessel is enlarged within the abdomen. AAA’s have a high proclivity to tearing and therefore must be monitored periodically as part of a rupture prevention program.

 

Dr. Gafanovich screens for abdominal aortic aneurysms at her Upper East Side office. It is a painless process using ultrasound technology to “take a picture” of the blood vessels of the abdomen. Her technicians measure your aorta using the transducer and takes readings that can be measured against “normal” or your previous exam/screen.

 

If you are at risk for cardiovascular or other internal issues, don’t hesitate to call your NYC Internist Dr. Marina Gafanovich to make an appointment for a physical exam. (212) 249-6218
