Aortic Surgery Fellowship

Aortic Surgery Fellowship

The Baylor College of Medicine Aortic Surgery Fellowship (TMB #580-48-04-14) program is a one-year non-ACGME accredited program, approved by the Texas Medical Board. The program may be extended to a second year as determined by the program director. Fellows will undergo an evaluation of performance during the academic year may be used to determine the feasibility of extending their stay.

The mission of this fellowship is to provide specialized training in aortic surgery beyond cardiothoracic residency training in an environment that is aortic-focused and stresses clinical excellence. This fellowship includes an intense clinical experience in aortic and adult cardiac surgery, which includes but is not limited to: the treatment of aortic disease (aneurysms and dissection) utilizing both open and endovascular techniques; the treatment of coronary and valvular disorders (predominantly aortic but also including other heart valves); treatment of pulmonary, esophageal, mediastinal, chest wall, diaphragmatic, and other cardiovascular disorders, and the use of cardiac and respiratory support devices.
