Aortic Program for Medical Professionals

The Aortic Program at the Smidt Heart Institute welcomes referrals from outside physicians seeking consultations for their patients with suspected aortic disease. The program's goal is to work alongside referring physicians and enhance their patients’ care through the services Cedars-Sinai provides, including clinical trials.

To refer patients or reach the Aortic Program, call 310-423-3851.
