As cyclists we use our heart a lot! My doctor Dr. Angel Leon is the head electrocardiolist at Emory and is instrumental in launching the Emory Heart and Vascular Center. The Center for research was started just over a year ago to bring 4 concentrations together and needs our help to continue this great area of research that can help us all.
Emory's Heart and Vascular Center is Expert Care, Close to Home
The Heart & Vascular Center has a national reputation for treating complicated heart conditions by using the most advanced treatment options and therapies. In this center, cardiology, vascular surgery, cardiothoracic surgery, cardiac imaging and other subspecialties come together to provide comprehensive heart care.
The collaboration between all four specialties within the Emory Heart and Vascular Center delivers seamless care for our patients and allows for quick access to other specialties as needed. The physicians within the Emory Heart and Vascular Center are a true team – relying on each other’s vast research and expertise to bring our patients the best care available.
We’re committed to providing superior heart and vascular patient care, promoting overall heart health, pioneering innovative clinical cardiovascular research, and training the best heart specialists in the world.
Did You Know?
As an academic health center, many of our physicians are faculty from the Emory University School of Medicine. Emory's team of heart and vascular health researchers use knowledge gained in basic science research and apply it to our clinical (medical) research. This process of connecting biological discoveries made in the laboratory (basic science research) with clinical (medical) research is called translational research — and is crucial to the development of important new therapies, devices and protocols that directly impact heart and vascular patient care.
Our Heart & Vascular Center is the only program in Atlanta, and one of just a few in Georgia, to be involved in translational research. This consistently propels Emory to the forefront of cutting-edge cardiovascular treatments and technologies, and results in better outcomes for patients.
