Emory Cardiothoracic Surgeries for Quicker Healing, Healthier Hearts
In addition to developing innovative methods of performing cardiac surgery, the members of Emory's Cardiothoracic Surgery Team are international experts and teachers of such minimally invasive procedures as off-pump coronary artery bypass surgery and robotically assisted, minimally invasive coronary artery bypass surgery, the least invasive method of bypass surgery currently available.
Emory’s cardiac surgeons offer more procedures than any other service in Georgia, including:
Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery
Robotically Assisted, Minimally Invasive Bypass Surgery
Hybrid Minimally Invasive Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery & Stent Placement
Complex Aortic, Mitral and Tricuspid Valve Surgery
Valve surgery fixes narrowed or leaking heart valves. Our surgeons perform minimally invasive heart valve repair and replacement procedures, such as:
- Balloon valvuloplasty
- Transcatheter aortic valve implantation
Sometimes traditional open surgery is needed. When possible, we repair valves without replacing them. If you do have to have a valve replacement, we offer mechanical (metal) valves and bioprosthetic valves (made from animal tissue).
