Cardiothoracic Surgery Service

Cardiothoracic Surgery Service

Performing the only open heart surgery in Suffolk County, our cardiothoracic team specializes in high-risk and tertiary care types of surgical intervention. Our surgeons provide consultation and surgical care for patients with advanced forms of heart, lung, and mediastinal disease. They perform surgery to treat all forms of adult heart disease, including high-risk states after acute myocardial infarctions and congestive heart failure; aneurysm surgery; thoracic vascular surgery; valve repair surgery; electrophysiological surgery, including the maze procedure for arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats); and minimally invasive heart surgery, including MIDCAB and OPCAB, the "off pump" coronary artery bypass procedures, and also endovascular thoracic aortic aneurysm repair, the new "internal bypass" stent procedure. Other new approaches to cardiac surgery, such as transmyocardial revascularization for ischemic heart disease, are also used. Our surgeons manage the Hospital's 15-bed Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit, which is capable of providing postoperative care for the highest-risk heart patients. Our cardiothoracic team performs annually about 500 heart operations.

Our thoracic specialists treat a range of benign and malignant pulmonary diseases in both adults and children. They perform conventional operations as well as new minimally invasive procedures, such as videoscopic lung resection and radiofrequency ablation for lung cancer. Reflecting their commitment to utilizing the latest treatment advances, they perform Suffolk's only lung volume reduction surgery for severe emphysema.

Our Surgery practice includes physicians with specialized training and a focus on the evaluation and treatment of patients with heart and lung conditions that may require surgery.
