Cardiothoracic conditions we treat
At the Heart and Lung Centre, our world-class surgeons treat a broad range of cardiothoracic conditions, including heart disease, cancers and more.
What is a cardiothoracic condition?
'Cardiothoracic’ is an umbrella term that refers to the heart, lungs and other organs located within your thoracic (chest) cavity. There are both cardiovascular conditions (affecting the heart and blood vessels) and thoracic conditions (affecting the lungs and associated structures).
Not all heart and lung conditions require surgical treatment, but if they do you will be referred to cardiothoracic surgery.

A cardiovascular condition is one that affects the heart and blood vessels. Some conditions can be treated through non-surgical means in our cardiology department.
Thoracic conditions we treat
