Which procedure is right for me, and why?

What are the alternatives?

How many operations like this have you performed, and what have the results been for other patients?

What happens during my hospital stay?

How long does the operation take?

How long is the recovery afterwards?

How soon can I expect to be feeling right again?

Are there any restrictions on my lifestyle afterwards?

What long-term monitoring do I need after the operation?

Safety in second opinions

Your surgeons discuss all potential treatments together, and will involve specialist colleagues in other disciplines (including open thoracic aortic surgery and adult congenital cardiac/aortic disease) if this is required.

We’re proud of our service and confident in our results. If you’ve been given advice regarding one of the conditions we treat and would like a second opinion, we’re happy to help. If possible, we may be able to offer alternatives based on our particular expertise.
