Thoracic Surgery

Thoracic Surgery is a surgical specialty devoted to the treatment and diagnosis of pulmonary and thoracic diseases amenable to surgical approach, in the following areas: lung, pleura, mediastinum, chest wall and diaphragm.

This specialty maintains an important collaboration with respiratory medicine and works in liaison with other specialties such as Oncology, Critical Care Medicine, Imaging and General Surgery, also providing support for all medical and surgical specialties.

With the increasing incidences of lung cancer and adoption of minimally invasive approaches in approaching the thoracic cavity, we have set up the Lung Cancer Database. With the information we can analyse the surgical results and outcome of the patients and help us in further improvement.
