Experienced Heart and Valve Care

When you or a loved one is diagnosed with a condition that affects the heart or heart valves, the specialists at the Structural Heart and Valve Center at Emory Healthcare offer the compassionate care and expertise you need.

Emory’s multidisciplinary team of interventional and non-invasive cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, and cardiovascular imaging specialists, partner to develop individualized care plans while continuously working together to provide patients with innovative and effective cardiovascular care.

Emory Healthcare was the first site in Georgia to perform Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR), valve replacement without open-heart surgery, and our team has performed more of these procedures than any other healthcare system in Georgia. In fact, Emory Healthcare is a nationally recognized academic center of excellence due to our vast array of advanced technologies and treatment options. We offer several FDA approved, minimally invasive, catheter-based therapies, as well as clinical trials that offer up and coming treatments. This combination of collaborative care and cutting-edge treatments leads to better outcomes for patients.
