Cardiothoracic surgery

Proven care to support every step of your journey

When there's a problem with your car's engine, you take it to the best mechanic in town. In the same way, when you're experiencing difficulties with your heart, you need an expert's help. The providers at VCU Health Pauley Heart Center's Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery provide the highest level of specialty heart care, with the compassion and understanding you need during a frightening time in your life.

Our services

Unlike a cardiologist who mostly performs minimally invasive procedures on the heart, a cardiothoracic surgeon is a doctor who is trained to perform procedures on several different organs in the thorax (chest). Our world-class cardiothoracic surgeons are here to help with surgical treatment options to address even the most complicated of cases.
