Best Multi-Speciality Hospital for Cardiothoracic Surgery

Cardiothoracic surgery is a surgical specialty that deals with the heart, lungs, and other organs in the chest. Devadoss Hospital has Cardiothoracic surgeons who can perform a variety of procedures, including heart valve repair or replacement, coronary artery bypass surgery, and lung cancer surgery. In addition, we employ cutting-edge robot technology to conduct cardiothoracic surgery with higher precision and accuracy.


Heart valve surgery

This surgery is performed to repair or replace a heart valve that is not working properly. There are four heart valves: the mitral valve, the aortic valve, the tricuspid valve, and the pulmonary valve. Each valve controls the flow of blood through the heart. Heart valve surgery can be performed to repair a leaky valve, a narrowed valve, or a valve that is not opening or closing properly.

Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery

This surgery is performed to create a new blood supply to the heart by grafting a blood vessel from another part of the body to the coronary arteries. The coronary arteries supply blood to the heart muscle. When the coronary arteries become blocked, it can cause chest pain (angina) or a heart attack. CABG surgery can help to improve blood flow to the heart and prevent a heart attack.

Lung cancer surgery

This surgery is performed to remove lung cancer or other tumors in the chest. There are two main types of lung cancer surgery: lobectomy and pneumonectomy. Lobectomy is the removal of one lobe of the lung. Pneumonectomy is the removal of the entire lung.


This surgery is performed to create an opening in the windpipe (trachea) to help a patient breathe. A tracheostomy may be performed if a patient has difficulty breathing due to an injury, a medical condition, or surgery.

It is a chronic condition that affects the joints, particularly the knee, hip, and spine joints that support body weight. It reduces the width of the joint area and obliterates the cartilage that protects the ends of bones. In addition, it may lead to impaired function, bone spurs, and excessive bone development. That occurs in most people as they age. Young people may also get it as a result of an accident or overuse.

Rheumatoid arthritis

Repetitive actions, excessive use, physical damage, and some medical problems like arthritis can all contribute to tendinitis. Rest, physical therapy, anti-inflammatory drugs, and surgery are frequently used as treatments.

Questions to ask a Cardiothoracic Surgery

Open heart surgery is a traditional type of surgery that involves making a large incision in the chest to access the heart. Minimally invasive heart surgery uses smaller incisions and instruments, which can lead to less pain, shorter recovery time, and faster return to normal activities.

Robotic-assisted surgery uses a robotic arm to control the surgical instruments. This allows surgeons to operate with greater precision and accuracy, which can lead to better outcomes for patients. Traditional surgery uses the surgeon’s hands to control the surgical instruments.

The benefits of minimally invasive heart surgery include:

  • Less pain
  • Shorter recovery time
  • Faster return to normal activities
  • Smaller scars

The recovery time for cardiothoracic surgery varies depending on the type of surgery and the patient’s overall health. However, most patients can expect to stay in the hospital for a few days after surgery. The recovery period may also include physical therapy and other rehabilitation exercises.

In some cases, non-surgical treatments, such as medication or lifestyle changes, may be enough to treat a heart or lung condition. However, in other cases, cardiothoracic surgery may be the only way to save a patient’s life or improve their quality of life.
