In brief: Cardio-Thoracic

"ct surgeon" is a general description applied to surgeons that have been trained and practice specialized surgery within the chest.
With further specialization in area of practice...Surgeons are more likely described as either cardiovascular surgeon or thoracic surgeon to acknowledge area of focus/specialization (i.e. Heart vs non-heart thoracic surgery).
