Marfan Syndrome Treatment Options at Dignity Health Central Coast
While there currently is not a cure for Marfan syndrome, our doctors will offer personalized treatments for your physical, mental, and spiritual needs.
Treatment options include:
- Medications to reduce your blood pressure and cause your heart to beat slower so your heart’s aorta is not stressed
- Treatments for complications affecting your spine, eyes, or lungs
- Surgery on your aorta to repair or replace it
- Ongoing medical care for your heart health
Dignity Health Central Coast heart doctors will create a care plan based on your specific symptoms and personal preferences. Your treatment will focus on alleviating your specific symptoms, since each person experiences the condition differently. A brace for spine support may help, while in other cases, surgery or a cardiovascular treatment may be necessary to repair the aorta.
Early diagnosis helps many people with Marfan syndrome live longer, healthier lives. Your doctor will work closely with you throughout your life to carefully monitor and treat your symptoms.
The cause of Marfan syndrome remains unknown, but it can pass from a parent to their children. A genetics expert can offer advice before you start family planning.
