Thoracic Surgery

We provide specialist thoracic surgery on the heart, lungs, esophagus and other organs in the chest.

Princess Alexandra Hospital's Cardiothoracic Surgery Department includes a 28-bed ward and two operating theatres, with a third theatre for thoracic surgery.

We provide consulting and surgical services on an elective and emergency basis for patients requiring advanced cardiac and thoracic surgical care.

We are Australia's second largest cardiothoracic surgery unit, providing surgery five day a week. We also provide outreach clinics to Cairns and the Gold Coast.
