Hello,

Thanks for the question.

Yes, Duke University Medical center has all the specialists needed to treat pulmonary embolism, the condition you have mentioned on the attached images.

The treatment will involve many different specialists from different branches.

Since pulmonary embolism is an emergency, I would advice you to go to the ER straightaway.

I hope this answers your particular question. You may write back if you need further information about specific doctors or any other clarification.

Wishing you speedy recovery.
