Life sometimes takes an unexpected turn
The best outcomes are those that enable patients to continue to live their life to the full.
You’re here because you, or a loved one, have been diagnosed with a heart or lung problem, which may require a surgical procedure. We are specialists in all aspects of adult heart and lung (cardiothoracic) surgery, and our surgical team is at the forefront of clinical surgery, academia and research, performing over 1,000 major operations each year. Our aim is to provide each patient with a quality of life outcome.
Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) is the single leading cause of death in Australia, with 19,766 Australian lives lost to the disease in 2018. On average, one Australian dies as a result of CHD every 27 minutes.1
CHD prevalence increases with age, with five per cent of Australians aged 55–64 reporting a long term CHD condition, increasing to 16% for Australians aged 75 and over.2
