    More About Cardiac Surgeons

    A Cardiologist is an expert in diagnosing and treating heart diseases without surgery. In case surgery is required, the cardiologists refer the patient to a cardiac surgeon who specializes in heart surgery.

    Cardio-thoracic surgeon is the name for heart surgeons, though heart surgeon is quite often used.

    Cardiothoracic surgeons focus on the heart, lungs, and other organs of the thoracic (chest) cavity and use surgical procedures to treat the disorders.

    No, it is the cardiac surgeon who performs the surgery. While cardiologists cannot do surgery, they can undertake several specialized treatments. Stents, for example, can be used by an interventional cardiologist to open clogged arteries. They can also implant modern devices in the heart of a patient with heart problems.
