Expert Team

The Aortic Program at the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute brings together a team of physicians, specialists and professionals from myriad disciplines. With a multifaceted and experienced team of cardiovascular specialists, patients can expect the best diagnosis and treatment options for conditions affecting the aorta.

Many of the physicians who have medical staff privileges to practice medicine at
Cedars-Sinai Medical Center are independent physicians, and not employees or agents of the hospital. These independent physicians bill separately for their services. You should contact your physician to determine their status and billing practices.
