About Heart & Lung Surgical Care
Our cardiothoracic surgeons specialize in procedures to treat the heart, lungs, esophagus and chest.
Cardiac surgery involves the heart, including arteries, valves and the aorta. We treat diseases of the heart including coronary artery disease, mitral valve disease and aortic valve disease. Our cardiothoracic surgeons practice at Memorial Health University Medical Center, which pioneered open-heart surgery in southeast Georgia and we continue to offer some of the most advanced surgical technology in the region.
Thoracic Surgery involves the organs and tissues of the chest, including the esophagus, the trachea and the chest wall. We treat diseases of the lungs and esophagus that include lung cancer, esophageal cancer and lung nodules.
