Cardiothoracic surgery

Cardiothoracic surgery is used to treat diseases and injuries affecting the heart, chest and lungs, including conditions such as coronary artery disease, lung cancer, thoracic disorders and traumatic injuries.

We offer a calming environment for you and your loved ones and provide all the information and support you need every step of the way.

Furthermore, our experienced and specially trained caregivers use the latest technology to ensure you receive the highest standard of care.

Cardiothoracic services

Our cardiothoracic surgeons are experts in a range of procedures and specialise in bypass operations using minimally disruptive techniques such as off-pump coronary grafting. We also offer lung resections and thoracoscopic surgery, where a small video camera in inserted in the chest to observe the surgery procedure, allowing for faster recovery.

Our surgeons work closely with our multidisciplinary cardiac services team. Your care may also include inpatient cardiac services, inpatient rehabilitation services and outpatient cardiac rehabilitation.

We are committed to helping you recover from your cardiothoracic surgery as quickly as possible, so you can get on with living your life.

Post-operative care

After your cardiothoracic surgery, you are likely to spend some time in intensive care where our caregivers will closely monitor you.

You may experience some pain after surgery, particularly around your chest and the incision site itself. For this reason, our caregivers will actively monitor and manage your pain levels around the clock.

Your recovery

We offer a range of rehabilitation services, including cardiac rehabilitation, which can help you return to your normal activities as quickly as possible.
