For Referring Physicians

Because aortic disease can be extremely complex and, in some cases, life threatening, it’s important to have the most skilled surgical team caring for your patients. Tampa General Hospital provides comprehensive care for every type of aortic condition and will not turn away even the most complex cases. On average, our team performs over 100 AAA and approximately 50 procedures involving the aortic root, ascending and transverse arch each year.  The team is available around the clock for emergent situations. Our team partners with referring physicians to provide personalized treatment plans that fit each patient’s needs. TGH provides the highest quality clinical care from medical management and prevention, to complex surgical procedures and interventions. Please refer any and all patients to the TGH Cardiovascular Center's Aorta Program that have an AAA, TAA, aortic dissection, thoracic aortic aneurysm, complications of EVAR, TEVAR, endoleak management, aortic occlusive disease or previous aortic surgery.

To refer a patient, please call the Aorta Program coordinator at (813) 394-5554 Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.  To transfer patients after business hours, call the TGH Transfer Center at 1-800-247-4472. You may also email us here.
