Cardiothoracic surgery at Cromwell Hospital

We are one of the only private hospitals in the UK to provide minimally invasive (keyhole) surgery for heart and lung conditions. Patients who undergo minimally invasive surgery may benefit from faster recovery times, less pain and reduced scarring.

If your surgeon feels you are an appropriate candidate, some procedures can be carried out robotically using our state-of-the-art da Vinci Xi system. Your consultant can explain more about robotic surgery if this is something you are interested in.

Cardiovascular surgeries we offer

We carry out both minimally invasive (keyhole) and open-heart surgeries depending on the type of condition involved. Your surgeon will decide what type of surgery you are most suitable for.

Thoracic surgeries we offer

Thoracic surgery may be carried out using a thoracotomy or a minimally invasive (keyhole) surgical technique called video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS). Your surgeon will decide on the best approach for your case.

Paying for your treatment

We welcome both self-paying and insured patients.
