Dr. Youdelman's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Youdelman "Dr. Youdelman has extensive experience across all aspects of cardiac surgery including on and off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting, mitral valve repair, and aortic valve replacement including transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). His Aortic specialty practice includes aortic valve sparing techniques and complex reconstruction and repair of the aortic valve and the aorta. This includes open and endovascular aortic repair using the latest technology to repair aortic aneurysms and aortic dissection. His special interest is in risk stratification of patients and families with aortic disease. The Aortic Registry at the Aortic Center of Maimonides Medical Center will maintain critical information about patients and families with aortic disease. They have increased risk for aortic problems and this information is used to determine the safest approach to the care of these complex patients. Dr. Youdelman is an active member of the Society of Thoracic Surgeons and The Eastern Cardiothoracic Surgical Society. He currently serves on the Executive Council of the Eastern Cardiothoracic Surgical Society since being President of The Eastern in 2013."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Youdelman "I want to build a grassroots awareness of Aortic Aneurysm, Aortic Dissection, Aortic Rupture, and the importance of getting yourself checked for Aortic Disease so that patients can avoid emergent aortic surgery which carries a higher risk than elective repair of an aortic aneurysm.

Once Aortic Disease is identified, we all need to band together to support the patients, family, and friends. Whether an emergency operation or surveillance of a growing aneurysm, the diagnosis of aortic disease causes great anxiety, and having a group to turn to like our team at the Maimonides Aortic Center can make all the difference."
