Heart disease continues to be the leading cause of death in men and women. But, increasingly, effective information about the causes of heart disease has led to healthier lifestyles that save lives. In addition, cardiologists, such as the highly skilled and experienced cardiologists at Emory University Hospital Midtown, have made enormous strides in their ability to treat a wide variety of heart conditions effectively.
Our cardiologists offer the full spectrum of heart care from treating congenital heart defects to treating those with arterial fibrillation, arrhythmia and irregular heartbeats. We also offer a complete heart-risk evaluation and follow-up care after procedures such as angioplasty and heart catheterization.
Emory University Hospital Midtown also houses the Carlyle Fraser Heart Center, which offers a full range of cardiac services, including:
- Comprehensive arrhythmia management including pacemaker and Internal Cardiac Defibrillator (ICD) implantation. ICD implants sense life-threatening arrhythmias and shock the heart back into its proper rhythm.
- Balloon angioplasty and athrectomy, which removes rigid buildup (e.g., calcium) and removes arterial blockage rather than pushing it aside.
- Multiple forms of echocardiography, which uses sound waves to view the function of the heart.
