General CardiologyHelping you achieve your best heart health requires a team of experts with a broad range of skills and experience. At Wellstar, our nationally recognized team is made up of cardiovascular specialists who strive to provide you comprehensive, coordinated care that meets you right where you are.
Cardiac SurgeryAt Wellstar, we focus on the evaluation and treatment of heart problems to provide you with the best possible outcomes. Our cardiac and vascular surgeons perform both traditional surgery and minimally invasive procedures for patients with advanced and complex heart issues, including valvular heart disease, intracardiac shunt defects and left atrial appendage occlusion.
Advanced Ablation ProceduresThe heart experts at Wellstar Atlanta Medical Center are experienced with a wide range of advanced heart ablation procedures. We use these procedures to treat heart rhythm disorders (arrhythmias) such as atrial fibrillation (AFib) and supraventricular tachycardia (SVT). Heart ablation treatments carefully and intentionally scar tissue in the heart, blocking the abnormal electrical signals which cause an irregular heartbeat. At Wellstar, we have access to convergent ablation, a new, minimally invasive treatment that restores heart rhythm without large incisions. This treatment successfully assists AFib patients in more than 80% of cases.
Cardiac CatheterizationWellstar Atlanta Medical Center’s team of expert interventional cardiologists specialize in catheter-based heart procedures. These minimally invasive treatments access the heart through veins and arteries, rather than by making a large incision in the chest. With this less invasive approach, patients can recover more quickly and avoid some of the complications of traditional cardiac surgery. Our team uses these advanced procedures to treat a range of heart conditions, including heart rhythm disorders and heart attacks.
Cardiac Diagnostics & ImagingHeart care experts at Wellstar Atlanta Medical Center collaborate in a multidisciplinary fashion to diagnose heart conditions. While some tests may be performed in your doctor’s office, you may be referred for more advanced imaging.
Our cardiac imaging and diagnostics team helps your team of heart care specialists understand what is causing symptoms. We use advanced technology to make and analyze sophisticated images of the heart.
To provide you with the most accurate diagnosis, your doctor may refer you to our specialized cardiac diagnostic center for these types of imaging and tests:
- Electrocardiogram (EKG)
- Stress tests
- Cardiac CT
- Cardiac PET Scans
- Cardiac ultrasound
- Cardiac MRI
- Calcium Scoring and Heart Screenings—Know Your Heart Class
- Nuclear cardiology

PCIWellstar Atlanta Medical Center utilizes Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) technology to aid in expert heart care procedures. This non-surgical technique opens heart blood vessels which have narrowed due to plaque buildup. Our heart patients benefit from this minimally invasive approach, which helps speed up recovery and improves overall outcomes.
Comprehensive Device ImplantationWellstar offers the most advanced arrhythmia program in the state of Georgia, and Wellstar Atlanta Medical Center specializes in implanting devices to treat heart rhythm disorders (arrhythmias) with an outstanding track record of success. Our team of experts provides complete care for pacemaker and defibrillator implantation, making sure we find the right solution for your needs.
Cardiovascular Behavioral MedicineOur cardiovascular behavioral medicine team empowers people with heart conditions to achieve their health goals, manage emotions related to their condition and help avoid rehospitalization. Sometimes low mood, panic, overwhelming emotions, difficulties with problem-solving or memory, frustration with making change, and chronic fatigue get in the way of progress. Our heart-focused behavioral health team members use scientifically-supported approaches to help people overcome these barriers. If you have a cardiac condition, have made a good-faith effort at change and are still struggling to achieve health goal success, a referral to one of our clinicians could help.
Our office is in Marietta but we offer virtual appointments depending on your preference and clinical needs.
