Help Us Continue Breaking New Ground in Cardiac Surgery

Complex coronary revascularization, minimally invasive coronary bypass surgery, off-pump coronary artery bypass surgery, repair of thoracic aortic aneurysms, and heart valve repair are all life-saving advances in adult cardiac surgery developed at Emory.

Emory has earned national recognition as one of the premier diagnostic, treatment and research centers for adult cardiac disease. Physicians from all over the country refer patients to Emory, and many of the country's top physicians come to Emory for their specialist training.

In today's rapidly changing health care arena, academic medical institutions are increasingly stretched to meet their equally important missions in patient care and services, teaching, and research. Private gifts have helped and continue to help make a vital difference in meeting diverse needs.

  • Patient Services: Gifts for patient services make a critical difference in purchasing state-of-the-art equipment for operating and recovery rooms at Emory University Hospital Midtown and Emory University Hospital. These gifts also assist in providing programs and special services for patients in educating family members about caring for their relatives when they return home.
  • Teaching: Training doctors is labor-intensive, worthwhile work. Your gift to the Emory Adult Cardiac Surgery Service can help ensure that tomorrow's generation of doctors will be fully prepared to meet the needs of tomorrow's patients. Through such support, gifted clinicians and educators are able to devote more time to mentoring their students, exploring new and better ways of teaching and passing on a passion for excellence in patient care.
  • Research: Discoveries in treatment and prevention that have made life longer and better for countless patients have been made possible only through dedicated research. Gifts for research help fund equipment purchases, data collection, research assistance and the researchers’ efforts in the laboratory. New knowledge may not always have immediate market value; however, its value to patients and those who care for them can be immeasurable.
