Anschutz Advanced Aortic Services

University of Colorado


At the University of Colorado we offer leading edge aortic repair by a multidisciplinary team of Vascular and Endovascular specialists.

  • The primary aortic procedures are Endovascular Aneurysm Repair, or EVAR, and Thoracic Endovascular Aneurysm Repair, or TEVAR. These procedures along with the occasional open repair allow us to effectively treat a myriad of disorders.


  • 80-90% of the EVAR and TEVAR procedures performed at University of Colorado use a percutaneous approach rather than a groin cut down.  This patient preferred approach and has decreased length of stay and faster recovery times.


  • Within the Rocky Mountain region, Endovascular aortic repair using fenestrated grafts is only available at the University of Colorado . These devices allow endovascular repair of aneurysms which involve multiple other visceral vessels.
