Aortic aneurysms are amongst the leading causes of death in the United States, particularly for men over the age of 65. Drs. Tapper and Diamond can provide screening ultrasounds for this asymptomatic condition in our office. If an aneurysm is diagnosed, both physicians can prescribe the appropriate medications to reduce the risk of growth and/or rupture. In the event that surgery is required, Drs. Tapper and Diamond are both well-versed in the latest endovascular techniques for complex aneurysm repair.
