Thoracic Surgeon

Thoracic surgeons are medical doctors who specialize in chest, heart, and lung surgery. Thoracic surgeons may further specialize in one area, such as heart surgery or lung surgery, or in a sub-specialty of that area, such as coronary artery bypass surgery.

Thoracic surgeons are certified by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
