Cardiothoracic surgery, also known as thoracic surgery, is the field of medicine involved in surgical treatment of organs inside the thorax (generally treatment of conditions of the heart and lungs). Laparoscopy, invented by George Kelling in 1901, is an operation performed in the abdomen or pelvis using small incisions with the aid of a camera. The laparoscope aids diagnosis or therapeutic interventions with a few small cuts in the abdomen. As a general laparoscopic & thoracic surgeon, Dr. Thomas specializes in surgical procedures of the heart, lungs, esophagus, and other organs in the chest.
