Providing Cardiothoracic & Pulmonary Surgical Services
Cardiothoracic surgery at University of Utah Health Care is committed to superior patient care, clinical care, and research into diseases confronting our patients. We have a nationally recognized program, which uses the latest in medical technology in all of our cardiothoracic procedures. Due to our wide range of specialists, we are able to diagnose and treat the entire spectrum of cardiac disease. We work together with all of our other specialists in the hospital to ensure the total patient is cared for.
Why We Are Unique
The surgical cardiothoracic team conducts and practices innovative research. Patients who were once thought untreatable have found new hope. We also perform fewer invasive procedures shortening recovery time for our patients. Having more options for cardiothoracic surgery procedures allows the patient to truly make an informed decision regarding his/her treatment.
