The Department of Surgery offers patients access to surgical experts that handle hundreds of high-volume and complex surgeries each year. From minimally invasive to complicated operations that require multiteam specialists, our care teams are ready to help you. That's the Emory Difference.
Established in 1930, the Department of Surgery was essential in shaping the Emory University School of Medicine into one of the nation's top institutions for medical education, research, and patient care. Our physicians are pioneers in developing new surgeries, improving surgical care, and decreasing the risks involved in surgery. These learnings are then shared with other health care organizations to help advance surgical care globally.
