About Us

Good surgery is about ensuring that you can continue to live a fulfilled and complete life.

You may be visiting this site because you or someone you know has been diagnosed with a heart or lung problem which may require surgery, and you are probably wanting to know more about that surgery and the surgeon who might perform it.

At Adelaide Cardiothoracic, we strive to provide all of our patients with the best possible outcome from their surgery. Our surgical teams perform more than 1,000 heart and lung operations each year, with consistently excellent results compared to our national and international peers.

We treat both public and private patients at Flinders Medical Centre and the Women’s and Children’s Hospital, and at Adelaide’s major private hospitals including Ashford Hospital, Calvary Adelaide Hospital, Flinders Private Hospital, and St Andrew’s Hospital.

Our Mission

We aim to provide the best possible care for all patients undergoing heart or lung surgery — from the first consultation, through the operating theatre and hospital stay, to safe discharge home and follow-up. Every step of the way, we will treat you and your family with care and respect, the way we would want to be treated if we were in your position.

Why Choose Us?

The surgeons of Adelaide Cardiothoracic have established a history of excellence in all areas of heart and lung surgery in South Australia. Through Flinders Medical Centre, we also provide both surgical services and outreach care to patients in the Northern Territory, where FMC is recognised as one of the leading surgical centres for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients. Our surgeons have excellent working relationships with local and interstate cardiologists, respiratory physicians, and other specialists, providing the best possible outcome for patients and ensuring they receive the right procedure at the right time. We are members of a number of multidisciplinary teams focusing on best practice in both heart and lung procedures.
