Welcome to the Cardiology Program

Your heart condition — no matter how common or rare — should get the best possible care. That’s what you’ll receive at Emory. Our heart specialists are known locally and nationally for their skills at diagnosing and treating heart problems. And we bring that expertise to the personal level for you.

World-Class Care for Your Heart 

Whether you need monitoring for a simple erratic heartbeat or treatment for a more serious disorder, our heart doctors and other specialists have the knowledge and skills to help. We use the best of proven heart care strategies and are pioneers in developing innovative new treatments. Your care team will create a treatment plan just for you and make sure you have all the information and resources you need at every step.

While we have plenty of cardiologists who will see you for your general cardiology needs, we also have several programs that specialize even further to meet all of our patient’s needs. Below are additional cardiology centers and programs offered within the larger Emory Heart and Vascular Center. 

Adult Congenital Heart Center

If you have congenital heart disease (CHD) or had one repaired as a child, specialized monitoring and care will always be part of your life. 

Electrophysiology Program

Skipped beats, flutters, pounding or racing heartbeats — these are symptoms of heart arrhythmia. Many don’t need treatment, but some indicate a serious problem. The Electrophysiology Team can diagnose and treat arrhythmias with a wide range of innovative and proven techniques.

Fibromuscular Dysplasia Program

The Fibromuscular Dysplasia Program has a multi-specialty team that provides comprehensive, coordinated care from every aspect including evaluation, diagnosis, genetics, medical treatment, invasive procedures and monitoring. 

Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Program

With this condition the walls of the heart become thick, making it harder for the heart muscle to pump blood. If you have hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), you need lifelong care to protect your heart.

Interventional Cardiology Program

People with coronary artery disease have a buildup of a substance called plaque inside their heart vessels. Heart specialists use minimally invasive procedures to view these areas, open the vessels and improve circulation. This is called interventional cardiology, and it can be a lifesaving treatment.

Preventive Cardiology Program

If you have high blood pressure, high cholesterol or other heart disease risks, you can benefit from the Preventive Cardiology Program.

Pulmonary Embolism Program

A pulmonary embolism is a sudden blockage in a lung artery. The cause is usually a blood clot in the leg called a deep vein thrombosis that breaks loose and travels through the bloodstream to the lung.

Sports Cardiology Program

The Sports Cardiology Program is a one-of-its-kind program in Atlanta specializing in helping athletes of all ages and stages of athleticism, achieve and maintain optimal cardiovascular health; which is vital to your performance and in some cases, your ability to participate.

Structural Heart and Valve Center

People with structural heart diseases have defects in their heart valves, walls or other areas. Our Structural Heart Program brings specialists together to provide innovative solutions for these problems.

Women’s Heart Center

Women can have different heart disease risks and symptoms from men. Our Women’s Heart Program helps women prevent heart disease, and improves outcomes for women with this condition.

Did You Know?

Emory's heart specialists literally wrote the book on cardiology — the medical textbook, The Heart, first published in 1967 — and built the foundation for cardiovascular care in Georgia by developing training programs that produce 85 percent of the practicing cardiologists and heart surgeons in the state.

At Emory, our heart specialists treat the full range of heart problems. We are among world leaders in caring for people with heart failure, and we are at the forefront in areas such as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and congenital heart disease. At the same time, we work hard to give people the information and tools they need to prevent heart disease before it starts. And all this happens close to you — we have more than 23 Heart & Vascular clinics across North Georgia.
