Each year, our surgeons perform more than 1500 major operations on hearts, lungs or other areas of the chest. Since our program began in 1952, diagnostic techniques, surgical knowledge and postoperative care have changed and improved, The UNC CT Surgery Division has adapted and adopted these new technologies and techniques such that we are a full service program encompassing the entire spectrum of surgical cardiothoracic disease. Through these changes, one thing has stayed the same: our strong commitment to the excellent care, before, during and after surgery, of the citizens of North Carolina and beyond. To improve health care in the future, our physicians are involved in cutting-edge research. We also offer rigorous training to medical students and resident physicians.
