Cardiothoracic Surgery

About Cardiothoracic Surgery

When it comes to surgery of the chest and heart, Borgess Cardiothoracic Surgery remains the area’s leader. Our surgeons have performed thousands of cardiothoracic procedures with some of the lowest mortality and complication rates in the country. So more than ever, more patients are returning to what matters most: their lives.

Cardiothoracic surgeons at Borgess deliver advanced care to patients with diseases of the lungs, trachea, esophagus, chest wall and mediastinum. Whenever possible, we provide minimally invasive treatment options, so patients recover sooner. Cardiothoracic procedures include:

  1. General video assisted thoracic surgery (VATS)
  2. CorRestore® patient procedure
  3. Open-heart surgery (bypass surgery)
  4. Transmyocardial laster revascularization
  5. Valve repair and replacement, including the groundbreaking transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR)
