Conditions and Treatments


Aortic Aneurysm

A weakened or bulging area on the wall of the aorta, which may occur anywhere on it.


An arrhythmia refers to an abnormal heart rhythm. You can sometimes feel this yourself, when it feels like your heart flutters, or there’s a brief pause in its rhythm.

Benign Tumors

A tumor, or abnormal growth in the lungs, is the result of abnormal cells or cell death in lung tissue, or in the airways leading to the lungs.

Blocked or Clogged Artery

When the arteries to your heart are blocked or damaged, the flow of oxygenated blood is restricted or completely stopped, and your heart can’t work properly.

Cancer (malignant tumors)

A malignant lung tumor is also known as lung cancer. The two major types of lung cancer are non-small cell lung cancer and small cell lung cancer.

Heart Failure

Heart failure means that your heart isn’t pumping blood properly. Your heart still beats, but its ability to pump blood throughout your body isn’t being met.

Lung Infections

Lung infections occur when bacteria, viruses and sometimes fungi collect and begin to grow in a person’s lungs.

Pleural Effusion

When fluid builds up in the area between the lining of the lung and the chest cavity, it is called a pleural or pulmonary effusion.

Traditional Surgery

Traditional heart surgery is done under general anesthesia. The surgeon makes an incision about 8-10 inches long through the patient’s chest, through the breastbone. The rib cage is opened so the surgeon can access the heart.

Thoracic Surgery

Surgical treatments for lung conditions.

Minimally Invasive

Minimally invasive heart surgery is a technique that allows surgeons to operate on the heart through a smaller chest incision.

Cardiac Surgery

Surgical treatments for heart conditions.

Bypass Surgery

With a traditional bypass, the surgeon uses a heart-lung bypass machine to take over the heart’s functions, to mechanically pump oxygen and nutrients to your body during surgery.

Beating Heart Bypass Surgery

A beating heart bypass surgery is performed while your heart is still beating, unlike a traditional bypass.
