What Is Cardiothoracic Surgery?

You’re probably familiar with the terms “cardiac,” which refers to the heart, and “cardiovascular,” which references the heart or vascular system. “Cardiothoracic” is a similar term, combining “cardiac” care with “thoracic” care, which deals with medical conditions within the thorax.
