Cardiac surgery is the surgical specialty that deals with the heart and greater vessels performed by a cardiac surgeon. It is often used to treat complications of Ischemic Heart Disease through a coronary bypass. Cardiac surgery is also required to correct congenital heart disease or treat valvular heart disease due to various causes including endocarditis. Cardiac surgery also includes heart transplantation.
