Patient Story

Abdominal Aortic Surgery |

Ron Rolett's Story

Ronald Rolett, a retired physician from North Carolina, learned that he had an abdominal aortic aneurysm from a routine ultrasound screening. He then had follow-up ultrasound tests every six months until it had reached a critical size. Rolett became the first patient at The Johns Hopkins Hospital - and at any hospital in the mid-Atlantic region - to have an aneurysm repaired in a minimally invasive way using a graft that was made to fit his specific anatomy. He tells his story about the procedure, recovery and experience with Johns Hopkins Vascular Surgery.
