Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair: Ron Rolett

When Ron Rolett's bulging blood vessel reached a critical size, he opted for minimally invasive surgery at Johns Hopkins.

When Ron Rolett, a retired physician from North Carolina, learned that his abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) had reached a critical size, he sought a second opinion at Johns Hopkins.

As a result, Ron became one of the first patients in the country to have an aneurysm repaired using a fenestrated graft specifically fabricated to fit his anatomy, reducing recovery time and risk of kidney failure. Ron tells his story about the procedure, his recovery and experience at the Johns Hopkins Health and Vascular Institute.
