Cardiothoracic Surgery

The Cardiothoracic Surgery Department stands out with a personal approach to patient care, research in complex cardiothoracic issues and a hands-on residency program. With expertise in heart, lung and esophagus surgery, physicians offer specialized, advanced care to each patient. The department is a major referral center for cardiovascular and thoracic patients from around the world.

The robust clinical trials in the Neuberger Berman Lung Cancer allow researchers to test new treatments and medications that can help patients with heart, lung and esophageal disease.

The two-year Cardiothoracic Surgery Residency training program prepares surgeons for the American Board of Thoracic Surgery examinations and leaves them with a full understanding of technical cardiac and thoracic surgery.
