The acclaimed Duke Heart Center serves patients at scores of locations across North Carolina and the region, including at community-based practices throughout Wake County:
Duke’s skilled cardiologists deliver both general and subspecialty care at these outpatient locations, evaluating and treating patients with conditions including coronary artery disease, cardiac arrhythmias (including atrial fibrillation), valve disease, peripheral vascular disease, and advanced heart failure.
Our clinicians also evaluate and treat complex cardiac problems, provide second opinions for complicated cases, assess and mitigate cardiovascular risk factors, and perform executive physicals.
Patients requiring surgical procedures -- such as ventricular assist device (VAD) implantation, valve repair or replacement, thoracic aortic repair, and heart transplant -- undergo those procedures at Duke University Hospital, regularly recognized for cardiac-care excellence.
