Patient Care

Specialists at the UCSF Cardiothoracic Surgery Clinics treat diseases of the chest and heart, including its primary blood vessels, and work closely with the Heart & Lung Transplant Program. In recent years, many new minimally invasive techniques have emerged for treating cardiac and thoracic diseases.

UCSF offers the full range of minimally invasive approaches for both cardiac and thoracic surgeries.

The benefits are significant, including:

    Less blood loss

    Lower risk of infection

    Less post-operative pain at the incision site

    A shorter hospital stay

    Smaller, less noticeable scars

    A faster return to normal activities

    An improved cosmetic result

The cardiothoracic surgery team consistently earns one of the highest patient satisfaction scores among specialty clinics at UCSF Health.
