The Robert and Suzanne Tomsich Department of Cardiac Surgery at Cleveland Clinic Florida provides surgical treatment for patients with a wide range of conditions affecting the heart and lungs. The Robert and Suzanne Tomsich Department of Cardiac Surgery provides surgical treatment for patients with conditions affecting organs inside the thorax or chest such as the heart and lungs. Many of these procedures are performed using robotic surgery and minimally invasive approaches through small incisions with VATS (Video Assisted Thoracic Surgery).

Cleveland Clinic is a pioneer in minimally invasive beating heart surgery, which results in less pain and trauma, reduced recovery time and reduced risk of infection.

Following the Cleveland Clinic model of medicine, the Cardiothoracic Surgery section cooperates with many other specialists to provide patients with coordinated diagnosis and treatment plans.
