Cardiothoracic surgery is a medical field specializing in operations on the chest including the heart, lungs, and other thoracic organs.

Cardiothoracic surgeons deal with an extensive list of diseases — for example, coronary heart disease, cardiac arrhythmias, neoplasms of the lungs and chest, etc. Specialists in cardiothoracic surgery use thoracoscopic and laparoscopic methods of surgical interventions. To diagnose diseases, cardiothoracic surgeons use radiography, bronchoscopy, esophagoscopy, spirography, computer and magnetic resonance imaging, and much more.
