Lake Health partners with University Hospitals Harrington Heart & Vascular Institute to offer open heart and thoracic surgery at Lake West Medical Center. Our skilled surgical team works closely with the rest of your care team to provide the most advanced care close to home for gastrointestinal, cancer, lung conditions and more requiring a surgery.
Advanced techniques and technology
Thoracic (chest) surgery is used in the treatment of conditions that involve the organs of the chest and chest wall, plus the esophagus and trachea. We use the latest techniques, technology and devices to perform a wide range of thoracic procedures, using minimally invasive techniques for many procedures when possible.
