Heart Attack TreatmentAt Wellstar Cobb Hospital, our interventional cardiologists utilize catheter-based procedures to provide expert, minimally invasive heart attack care. These less-invasive treatments typically result in faster recovery with fewer complications because large chest incisions are avoided in favor of access to the heart via veins and arteries.

Our cardiologists work with a team of experts across many specialties to provide comprehensive care, including nurses, nutrition specialists, social workers and physical therapists. We’re here to help you:
- Better understand your condition
- Improve your health
- Manage your medications
- Make treatment decisions
ElectrophysiologyOur electrophysiology program at Wellstar Cobb Hospital offers a wide range of treatments for heart conditions which might benefit from ablation techniques, such as heart rhythm disorders (arrhythmias), including atrial fibrillation (AFib) and supraventricular tachycardia (SVT). We implant advanced devices which treat arrhythmias, including pacemakers and defibrillators. Our experts provide experienced care and utilize state-of-the-art technology.
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.
