Why Choose Emory?

Emory created the Heart & Vascular Center as a single destination to serve the broad range of needs of heart and vascular patients. The Center encompasses specialists from cardiology, cardiothoracic surgery, vascular surgery and cardiac imaging who work together to provide the best possible care for each individual patient. The Center also provides easy access to a wide range of other specialists within Emory Healthcare who work in close collaboration with the heart and vascular team to provide seamless care.

Emory cardiac surgeons within the Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery comprise one of the largest and most successful heart surgery services in the country. Emory’s Adult Cardiac Surgery Service has long been ranked among the top five academic centers in the nation in clinical volume and is considered one of the nation’s top institutions for biomedical education, research and treatment.

In addition to providing excellent patient care, Emory’s vascular and endovascular surgeons are committed to promoting overall vascular health, pioneering innovative clinical research and training the best vascular surgeons in the world. As contributors to one of the leading investigative centers in the nation, our vascular surgery specialists have been directly involved with developing or refining many of the procedures they perform.
