Chest (thoracic) surgery is the field of medicine involved in the surgical treatment of diseases affecting organs inside the chest such as chest wall, ribs, lungs, lung membranes, mediastinum, diaphragm, and oesophagus except heart and the major vessels.
Procedures/surgeries most frequently performed at our partner medical centers;
- Chest Wall
- Lymph Nodes
- Thoracic Outlet
Treatment of lung cancer can be curative for early stage of the disease. In the Chest Surgery Clinics of our reference medical centers, minimally invasive “Video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS)” is performed for early stage lung cancer. Removal of the lung nodules and the lobes is achieved by using a bag without opening the chest.
The main advantages of the VAT procedure:
- Shorter hospital stays
- Less post-operative pain
- Less scarring
- Faster recovery time
