Cardiothoracic Surgery Resources
“Cardiothoracic” is a term that means “pertaining to
the heart and the chest.” Cardiothoracic surgical treatment encompasses
surgical procedures treating the organs in the chest area. This includes
the heart, the lungs, the esophagus, and structures of the chest. Cardiothoracic
surgeons receive years of training in order to provide care for patients
with injuries or conditions affecting the heart, lungs, or other organs
in the chest. Examples of work these surgeons do include treating lung
cancer, diseases, getting biopsies, performing open heart surgery, treating
injuries, and more. Our website discusses both
lung procedures performed at our Fremont facility.
Washington Township Medical Foundation includes a team of accomplished
and experienced cardiothoracic surgeons. We are dedicated to providing
our community with access to excellent surgical care. Part of this commitment
encompasses a commitment to education and providing resources that can
help our patients understand their condition and the treatment ahead of
them. Knowledge is power, and access to helpful resources and information
enables us to better serve you and enables you to be an active participant
in your health and wellness plan.
