Accessibility Statement

We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.

We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.

Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website. If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.

Thank you. We hope you enjoy using our website.

Endovascular Aneurysm Repair

Endovascular surgery involves a minimally invasive technique that accesses areas of the body through major blood vessels. Endovascular repair is commonly used to treat thoracic and abdominal aneurysms, which occur when an artery wall bulges. It can cause the blood vessel to burst, leading to dangerous bleeding and even death. Surgeons at Palmetto General Hospital perform a procedure called a stent graft. Rather than open up the chest, the surgeon goes in through the groin and places a stent inside the damaged artery. The blood then flows through the stent rather than the artery.
