Medical Specialists in this area are called Cardiothoracic Surgeons (Sometimes referred to as Heart Surgeons),There are two main types of Cardiothoracic surgery. Cardiac surgery involves the heart and large blood vessels around it, and thoracic surgery (surgery inside the chest) involves the lungs and any other thoracic organ. They may be separate surgical specialties or combined as cardiothoracic surgery. Generally, this surgery covers treatment of conditions of the heart (heart disease) and lungs (lung disease).
