Cardiothoracic surgery includes adult and paediatric heart surgeries such as coronary artery bypass grafting, heart valve repair and replacement, surgery for lung and mediastinal diseases, and more. As a specific surgical discipline, thoracic surgeons need to be competent in pre and post-operative care which encompass investigation and planning, surgery, alongside post-operative management. Treatment options for patients include minimally-invasive procedures, video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) and others.
In Gleneagles, our thoracic surgeons are experienced and skilled in various thoracic surgeries. Depends on type of disease and patient's condition, minimally invasive surgery may be performed to manage the heart diseases.
With a smaller size of incision, minimally invasive techniques may reduce the surgery risks, shorten the hospital stays and provide greater comfort and quicker recovery to patients.
