Heart (cardiac) and chest (thoracic) surgeons at Mayo Clinic diagnose and surgically treat conditions of the heart, lungs and chest. They perform more than 4,000 cardiac surgeries each year at the clinic's campuses in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota.

Mayo Clinic surgeons are on the leading edge of treating cardiovascular and cardiothoracic conditions, including those that are rare and complex. They use the latest innovations in heart surgery, such as minimally invasive heart surgery with robot-assisted techniques.
