Sibley Heart Center: Sibley Heart Center (with Emory University) has an excellent reputation. I'm not from the area and don't know if they have any special center for connective tissue disorders (like Loeys-Dietz, Marfan or Ehlers-Danlos), but that would be a good place to start. Medical treatment and follow-up may be sufficient if the dilatation is not severe. Good luck.
