Emory Advanced Heart Failure Therapy Center: National leaders in heart failure care

Emory heart surgeons implanted Georgia’s first ventricular assist device (VAD)
Emory cardiac surgeons implanted Georgia’s first ventricular assist device (VAD) in 2006. This was the first example of VAD as a destination therapy in the state. Destination therapy provides long-term support in patients who are not candidates for transplant. Just a few years later, our VAD Program earned the Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval for Destination Therapy. It recertified in 2011. We’re one of only a few hospitals in Georgia VAD-certified by The Joint Commission. Fewer than 100 centers in the US have this certification. It shows our leadership and best clinical practices in offering LVADs as destination therapy.
