Cambridge, Ohio – While undergoing cancer treatment at Southeastern Med, lifelong Byesville resident Jeff Milton was diagnosed with an abdominal aortic aneurysm – an enlarged, weakened area in the lower part of the aorta. This condition is referred to as a “silent killer” because there are often no symptoms until it’s too late, and a rupture of this major artery can cause fatal bleeding.
Jeff hadn’t experienced any symptoms, but his aneurysm was large enough to concern his oncologist, Dr. Alkhouri, who referred Jeff to local vascular surgeon Dr. Jackson Flanigan for treatment. Dr. Flanigan is the only local surgeon trained to perform endovascular aneurysm repair, in addition to most minimally invasive vascular procedures for peripheral artery disease (PAD).
