What lies below our chests is a complex system of organs and muscles that each have a crucial job to keep us breathing and our hearts beating. Cardiothoracic surgeons treat diseased or injured organs in the chest, including the esophagus, trachea, pleura, mediastinum, chest wall, diaphragm, pericardium, heart and lungs.

Kansas City magazine’s annual Top Doctors list is compiled by a trusted national health care research and information company, Castle Connolly. A physician-led team of researchers follows a rigorous screening process to select top doctors through a nomination process that is open to all licensed physicians in America. The results are then carefully screened. Doctors do not and cannot pay to be selected for the Top Doctors list.
