Cardiothoracic Surgery Locum Tenens Physician Jobs

A cardiothoracic surgeon deals with the medical and surgical treatment of the organs inside the chest. Generally, a cardiothoracic surgeon focuses on the heart, lungs, and esophagus.

Training

It takes a bit longer to become a certified cardiothoracic surgeon compared to other specialties. After completion of medical school, candidates must first complete a general surgery residency followed by a fellowship. A residency typically takes 9-14 years to complete.

Cardiac Surgery

Back in 1925, heart valves were unknown. It wasn't until around 1948 that surgeons began to successfully and consistently operate by working on patients with mitral stenosis.

As a cardiothoracic surgeon, open heart surgery will be a meticulous, yet commonly performed procedure. During this surgery, the heart is stopped and drained of blood, which requires extensive knowledge of the heart, years of practice, and steady hands.

What a Cardiothoracic Surgeon Treats

Coronary artery disease or blockages of the arteries in the heart

Blockages in the heart valve(s)

Leaking heart valve(s)

Abnormal enlargement or aneurysms of the large arteries in the chest

Heart failure

Atrial fibrillation

Salary

Due to the extensive training required to practice cardiothoracic surgery, the average salary is $522,875 per year.
