A cardiothoracic surgeon is a physician that specializes in the medical field of surgery involving the organs inside the thorax or chest area.  Surgery of the heart, lungs, tracheal, bronchi, esophageal, airway passage, and other organs is common. Cancer is routinely the cause of surgery.  When a cardiothoracic surgeons level of care, skill or treatment falls below the standard of care and inflicts injury or death to a patient, medical malpractice may have occurred.  Unfortunately, even the best cardiothoracic surgeons can commit errors and mistakes that may result in serious injuries or wrongful death.

  • Delay in Diagnosis or Diagnostic Errors;
  • Failure to Diagnose;
  • Failure to Document Carefully;
