During a review of the construction work of the super-speciality hospital in November last year, the chief minister had said that the new hospital must be run in a fully professional manner and all best possible technology should be applied in all spheres of its operation.
Cardiothoracic surgery is the field of medicine involved in the surgical treatment of organs inside the thoracic cavity " generally the treatment of conditions of the heart (heart disease), lungs (lung disease), and other pleural or mediastinal structures.
The functioning of the CNC will also fulfill the need of many critical cardiac and neuro patients who have to go outside the state and region for treatment.
In most countries, cardiothoracic surgery is further subspecialized into cardiac surgery (involving the heart and the great vessels) and thoracic surgery (involving the lungs, oesophagus, thymus, etc.).
