What is Cardiothoracic Surgery? 

Cardiothoracic surgery is all about treating conditions of the heart, lungs, and chest, all of which are inter-dependant in many ways. Cardiothoracic surgeons carry out a wide range of cardiothoracic surgeries, everything from simple to complex, the most complex of all being heart and lung transplants. 

Cardiothoracic work deals with the many diseases that occur in these essential organs that lie inside the chest cavity, plus the bony and other structures that make it up, treating anything from coronary artery disease to blocked arteries and blocked heart valves.

What should you expect at a Cardiothoracic Surgery clinic?

Your GP might refer you to a cardiothoracic service, as can your cardiologist, respiratory physician, gastroenterologist or even your oncologist. You will probably see a surgeon on an outpatient basis at first, where you’ll discuss everything including your surgical choices and any other options, and the risks involved. You might also see an anaesthetist separately to assess your suitability for an anaesthetic. There’s dental involvement too, since there’s such a strong link between the teeth and the heart. If surgery is necessary you must visit the dentist no longer than 6 months before the surgery, and any ongoing or necessary dental treatment must be completed before your operation.
