Chest and Lung Surgery (Thoracic Surgery)

Thoracic surgrey department at our hospitals provide diagnosis and comprehensive treatment of malignant and non-malignant diseases of lungs, trachea, esophagus, chest wall and mediastinum. We pride ourselves on helping to our patients to find the options of care which are the safest, modern and most minimally-invasive. Our surgeons have been at the forefront of utilizing the latest minimally invasive surgical options, including laparoscopic and endoscopic techniques to help our patients. Minimally invasive surgical technique is less invasive than open surgery, reducing the risk of infection, minimizing scarring and patients recover from surgery more quickly. Our surgeons usually use minimally invasive surgical techniques like video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) to perform lung biopsies, pleural biopsies and remove malignancies from lung.

In order to guarantee that our patients get reliable and effective medical care we carefully selected highly trained surgeons to be part of our thoracic surgery department.
