Heart Surgery

Carilion Clinic’s heart and thoracic surgeons use the least invasive methods to achieve the best possible outcome for every patient.

Cardiothoracic surgery is the medical specialty that encompasses surgical procedures involving the organs inside the chest. Heart surgery, vascular surgery (which involves the vessels and arteries of the heart) and lung surgery are included in this specialty. Carilion Clinic has been providing advanced surgical care for cardiac and thoracic surgery patients in western Virginia for more than 30 years. Our heart, thoracic and vascular surgeons have more experience than any others in our area, having performed more than 21,000 heart and lung procedures. We have achieved a distinguished three-star rating from The Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) for its patient care and outcomes. Our surgeons work hand-in-hand to deliver patient-centered, highly coordinated care.
