A variety of diseases and conditions can affect the heart. They can be congenital, meaning the patient was born with the condition, or can be acquired as the patient ages. Most adult patients have acquired heart disease such as blockages in the coronary arteries and narrowing or leakage of heart valves. Heart surgery can treat these problems and in most cases provides the most complete and durable treatment available.Learn More »
The lungs can be affected by a variety of infections as well as benign and malignant tumors (cancer). Lung cancer is the leading cancer killer in America.

We also recognize the emotional and family toll that a diagnosis of heart disease or lung cancer carries, and that heart or lung surgery is a major life event. Clear, effective and timely communication and education are the best tools in helping the patient and family understand the patient’s condition, the treatment options, and the expected course of treatment and recovery.View our Patient Testimonials »
