Clinical Specialties and Programs

The primary purpose for all undertakings of the Emory Department of Surgery, be they based in education, clinical, or research pursuits, is to provide the best medical care possible. Since the appointment of Dr. Daniel C. Elkin as the first official chair of the Department in 1930, our faculty, staff, and trainees have dedicated themselves to this precept, and it remains the most vital and core motivating factor in our evolution.
