Solving the complex puzzle of aortic disease
Dr. Kong Teng Tan, Dr. Thomas Lindsay and Dr. Maral Ouzounian

​​​​​​​​​​Dr. Kong Teng Tan, Dr. Thomas Lindsay and Dr. Maral Ouzounian are part of the surgical team that selects and performs individualized procedures for patients with aortic problems.​​

A team approach allows doctors to offer solutions, and quality care, to patients like Nazmoon Griffith

Nazmoon Griffith points to her chest and abdomen to illustrate the surgeries at the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre (PMCC) that repaired her aorta, the main artery that carries blood throughout the body.

Perched on the seat of her walker in her Toronto, Ont., studio apartment, she traces lines vertically and diagonally across the front of her body.
