What is a cardiothoracic surgeon?
Cardiothoracic surgeons perform surgeries on the organs in the chest, including the heart, lungs, and esophagus. Some cardiothoracic surgeons specialize in one particular body system — for example, cardiac surgeons focus on open heart surgery. If you need surgery, you’ll get a referral to a cardiothoracic surgeon from another doctor, such as your primary care provider or your cardiologist.
