Why Choose Duke
Having a Duke heart specialist manage your care gives you access to the latest technology and treatments. Our ongoing work to set nationally accepted treatment guidelines ensures you benefit from heart care that is backed by research.
Superior Heart Care Outcomes
Studies show that major medical centers like ours that treat high volumes of patients achieve better results -- including fewer complications, faster recovery, and better long-term survival rates.
Lifesaving Initiatives for Heart Attack
Our efforts to improve cardiac care include an emergency response protocol for heart attack that ensures patients receive lifesaving treatment to restore blood flow as quickly as possible. As a result, we’ve helped increase survival rates across the state of North Carolina for the most serious form of heart attack.
High-Tech Heart Imaging
Imaging tests and minimally invasive procedures such as cardiac catheterization are the best way for you to get the right treatment at the right time and the best possible outcome. Only large heart centers like Duke have the most up-to-date technology and credentialed, certified heart specialists who make treatment recommendations based on what they see.
Treatment Advances and Clinical Trials
As a Duke patient, you may be eligible to participate in clinical trials that range from testing new therapies not available elsewhere to studying new ways to manage lifestyle changes that reduce your heart disease risk or help you live comfortably. We are also able to treat many people who are not considered candidates for treatment elsewhere.
Among the Best and Largest VAD and Transplant Programs
We are consistently recognized among the best and largest ventricular assist device (VAD) and heart transplant programs in the country. Transplant recognition is based on the number of transplants we perform, our transplant rates, and post-transplant survival rates.
