Our experience with complex cardiac and thoracic conditions and knowledge of the latest advances in this area have helped establish Health City Cayman Islands as a top hospital for cardiac and thoracic surgery patients from the Caribbean and around the world. We treat a wide range of pathological conditions that affect the chest cavity – in new born infants to older adults. Our thoracic surgeons perform some of the most complex surgeries in the world, with precision and exacting standards that result in improved function, breathing, and quality of life for our patients.

Our Thoracic Specialties

Our thoracic surgeons are dedicated to the prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the chest. We continue to expand treatment options for patients, utilizing minimally-invasive procedures, including video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS).

We regularly perform procedures to diagnose and treat illnesses and diseases that can limit breathing, cause pain, and significantly reduce quality of life. Our services encompass treatment of diseased organs including the esophagus (the tube that passes food to the stomach), the trachea (windpipe), the pleura (the membranes that cover and protect the lungs), the mediastinum (the area separating the left and right lungs), the chest wall, diaphragm, heart, and lungs.

At Health City Cayman Islands, our thoracic surgeons perform complex thoracic surgeries including:

  • Pneumonectomy
  • Lobectomy
  • Segmentectomy
  • Wedge resection
  • Decortication
  • Pleurodesis thymectomy
  • Resection of mediastinal tumours
