Cardiothoracic surgery in the United States is combined with general Thoracic surgery where the focus is on the heart, lungs, and esophagus. Our surgeons, with the help of our physicians and surgical assistants, perform a variety of surgeries that can be anywhere from minimally invasive to open heart transplants.
Cardiothoracic physicians and surgical assistants must meet the specific needs of the attending surgeon. They are and will become familiar with the surgeon and the precise knowledge of the surgical procedures being done, which limits the patient mortality and morbidity and promotes a harmonious relationship with the surgeon.
In the U.S., we pride ourselves on the significant patient experience and quality upkeep before and post-surgery as proper care is an integral part of the surgical treatment.
