Why Choose Emory?

As one of the few centers in the country – and the most comprehensive in the Southeast – Emory is performing an investigative procedure called transcatheter aortic valve implantation.

If you have a patient with aortic stenosis who may be a candidate for this procedure, please contact the cardiology research coordinator at 404-712-7667 or eblock@emory.edu, or contact Vinod Thourani, MD, FACC, at 404-686-2513. An extensive initial evaluation can be performed at Emory University Hospital or Emory University Hospital Midtown. Our multidisciplinary team will then review the results of the evaluation in order to tailor a treatment approach. Patients who are not eligible for a transcatheter heart valve may still undergo other innovative surgical options at Emory, including minimally invasive surgery or an apical-aortic conduit.

You can learn more about Emory’s Structural Heart Program at www.emoryhealthcare.org/structuralheart.
