Cardiothoracic Surgery

The surgeons of UF Health Cardiothoracic Surgery – Jacksonville are highly specialized and recognized experts in the field of heart, lung and chest surgery. UF cardiothoracic surgeons employ state-of-the-art technology and the latest surgical techniques to treat heart disease and lung and esophageal cancer, including minimally invasive and robotic surgery procedures that significantly improve outcomes and recovery time for patients.

Specializing in complicated, high-risk surgical procedures, these experts are at the forefront of heart, lung and chest surgery. The division has been recognized for excellence in bypass procedures and its outcomes have been well above the national average. Working in close coordination with specialists in cardiology, radiation oncology, medical oncology, pulmonology, pathology and radiology, the division treats a full array of conditions.

The division has established strong national leadership in cardiothoracic surgery. In 2007, one of our surgeons received The Society of Thoracic Surgeons Distinguished Service Award, which is the highest award of our largest professional society. In addition, our surgeons chair over a dozen national committees and/or subcommittees of The Society of Thoracic Surgeons and are members of numerous other national workforces. The Society of Thoracic Surgeons National Database is largely recognized as the prototype clinical registry for quality improvement in the country. This database is chaired by one of our cardiothoracic surgeons.
