Specialties and Programs

scrubbing-in at Emory University Hospital-Midtown

Clinical specialties of the Department of Surgery of the Emory University School of Medicine include burn care, cardiothoracic surgery, general and gastrointestinal surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, pediatric surgery, plastic and reconstructive surgery, surgical oncology, transplantation, trauma surgery, surgical critical care, and vascular surgery.

Our faculty conduct significant and progressive research that has produced highly relevant advances for healthcare; treat a wide array of patients and conditions, often offering procedures that are unavailable elsewhere in the state of Georgia; and train a large population of residents and fellows in multiple facilities.

The location of the Department in a vibrant, multi-faceted, and ultimately inspirational campus community grounds our programs in a culture of interaction and cross-collaboration. We are part of the Woodruff Health Sciences Center of Emory University, which includes the Emory schools of Medicine, Nursing, and Public Health; Yerkes National Primate Research Center, one of eight national primate research centers funded by the NIH; the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University, Georgia's first NCI-designated Cancer Center; and Emory Healthcare, the largest and most comprehensive health system in the state. The Emory medical community also has close ties with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American Cancer Society, the Georgia Institute of Technology, and other research institutions throughout the state and nation.
