Cardiovascular Thoracic surgery

Cardiovascular thoracic surgery is a subspeciality of cardiology that deals with diagnosing and treating diseases of organs in the thoracic cavity, including the lungs and heart.

It is mainly performed to treat heart and lungs diseases like oesophageal cancer, pulmonary embolism, heart failure, etc.

A cardiothoracic surgeon is a surgeon who completed his training and certification in thoracic surgery. Some of the common surgeries performed by a cardiothoracic surgeon are angioplasty, stent placement, ablation, pacemakers and implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs), etc.

Cardiothoracic surgery can be done in open, endoscopic, and robotic. Endoscopic and robotic cardiothoracic surgeries are minimally invasive and are the most preferred kinds. The surgeon or doctor will conduct pre-surgery tests to confirm that you are a good candidate for cardiothoracic surgery. The surgery method, for example, open, endoscopic, or robotic, will be decided according to your medical situation and your convenience.
