First responders say: “Air goes in and out. Blood goes ‘round and ‘round. Any deviation of this is bad.“

That’s where our thoracic surgery team can help. We treat everything from coronary artery disease and lung cancer, to congenital heart malformations and disorders of the esophagus.

After completing their schooling and a 5-year general surgery residency, our thoracic surgeons spent an additional two to three years in a cardiothoracic surgery residency before coming to work at our Cambridge community hospital.

It’s unique that a community hospital such as ours would be able to offer advanced thoracic surgery. We’re able to provide you with this kind of care because these skilled physicians chose to make their homes here in Guernsey County.

Specialized thoacic surgeries at Southeastern Med include:

  • Thoracotomy
  • Thorascopy
  • Mediastinoscopy 
  • Pericardial Window
