Cardiothoracic Surgery

Juris Medicus has cardiothoracic surgeons who collectively have nine decades of clinical experience encompassing aortic surgery, arterial bypass grafting, cardiac valve replacement, and heart transplantation.

A cardiothoracic surgeon operates on diseases that occur in the organs inside the chest and in the bony structures and tissues that form the chest cavity. Conditions where these specialists are involved in treatment are Barrett’s Esophagus, lung or esophageal cancer, GERD, chest wall tumors, mediastinal tumors, esophageal motility disorders, pleural diseases, coronary artery disease, and heart/lung failure. Some of the common interventions performed by a cardiothoracic surgeon are coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), lobectomy (removal of a lobe of the lung), ventricular septal defect repair, mitral valve repair and replacement, aortic valve replacement, esophagectomy (removal of a portion of the esophagus), arterial switch for transposition of the great arteries, and aortic aneurysm repair. A cardiothoracic surgeon may also be involved in surgeries involving the spine where a nontraditional exposure is necessitated.

Cardiothoracic surgeons are an integral part of the intensive care team and monitor patients closely in the post-operative period. They may subspecialize in adult cardiac surgery, pediatric cardiac surgery, general thoracic surgery, congenital cardiac surgery, and heart and lung transplant surgery.
