Cardiothoracic surgeons typically perform heart and chest surgery. Cardiologists collaborate with surgeons to manage patients and determine whether surgery is necessary. They may also collaborate to treat irregular heartbeats.
A cardiac surgeon is a type of cardiothoracic surgeon who focuses on the heart, its valves and structures, as well as the important veins and arteries that surround it. General cardiothoracic surgeons specialize in the upper abdomen's organs, including the lungs, esophagus, and heart.
