St. Luke's is a center of excellence for valve surgery and our cardiothoracic surgeons perform hundreds of cardiac surgical procedures each year. Of these, approximately 50% are isolated aortic or mitral valve replacements, mitral valve repair, or a combination of coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) with valve replacement or mitral valve repair.
Our highly skilled team also treats conditions of the esophagus and lungs, including tumors, cancer, and pleural disease. Surgery capabilities include traditional chest surgery and esophagectomy, as well as minimally invasive, video assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) for biopsies, lung lesion removal, and lobectomy. We also perform minimally invasive staging of the mediastinum including endobronchial and endoscopic ultrasound, transcervical thymectomy for treatment of myasthenia gravis, and chest wall resection and reconstruction.
Our team offers innovative treatments to address conditions such as coronary artery disease, heart valve disorders, lung disease, and vascular disease.
