Cardiothoracic Surgery

Formerly Cardiothoracic Surgery of Maine

Complicated surgery is daunting enough. But when you can receive the highest level of care for complicated surgery, and get that care close to home, it’s one more way we can ease your mind and help make your experience better. That’s our goal; deliver compassionate, world-class cardiothoracic care to the people of Maine. 

We are exclusively devoted to diseases of the heart, lungs, chest wall, esophagus, thoracic aorta, diaphragm, and mediastinum. You’ll get appropriate treatment without the need for inconvenient and costly travel, since we have the only cardiothoracic practice in Northern and Central Maine.

Cardiothoracic surgery is a complex and high-risk surgical specialty. It’s important for you that we provide well-researched treatment plans, successful surgeries, and thorough postoperative care. Our care meets or exceeds published results at other institutions worldwide, and we’ll be with you every step of the way. 

All of us at Northern Light Cardiothoracic Surgery are committed to providing the best possible care to you and your family. If we can provide guidance or answer any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us using the form below.
