Thoracic surgery: Private treatment

Thoracic surgery is the field of medicine involved in the surgical treatment of diseases affecting organs inside the thorax (the chest), excluding the heart, such as treatment of conditions of the lungs, chest wall, esophagus and diaphragm. Thoracic surgery is often grouped with cardiac surgery and called cardiothoracic surgery.


The professional body in the UK which represents thoracic surgeons and supervises the training of thoracic surgeons is the Royal College of Surgeons. There is also an American association for Thoracic surgery AATS and a Society of Thoracic Surgeons .
