We carry out surgical treatments for traumas and diseases of the thoracic wall, lungs, trachea, mediastinum, thymus gland, diaphragm and esophagus with our experienced surgical team who employ cutting edge medical technology.  

Our high success rate in the practice of endoscopic surgery in addition to our open surgical techniques greatly increase our patients’ chances of full recovery. Patient satisfaction is maximized by VATS (Videothoracoscopy-minimal invasive operations) and robotic-assisted operations that shorten post operative convalescence, ensuring earlier engagement in daily life activities and decreases the need for pain killers.

Fiberoptic bronchoscopy and EBUS (Endobronchial Ultrasound Bronchoscopy, allows physicians to perform a technique known as transbronchial needle aspiration to obtain tissue or fluid samples from the lungs and surrounding lymph nodes without conventional surgery) are among the technical procedures that increase our department’s prominence in the medical community. “Palmar-Axillary Primary Hyperhydrosis” for excessive sweating on the palms of the hands and in the armpits and thymectomy for treatment of Myasthenia Gravis are examples of operations carried out by our department.

A multidisciplinary approach is adopted for treatment of all relevant diseases at our hospital. The most important aspect of this approach is the Multi-disciplinary Tumor Committee that holds meetings on a weekly basis. Our patients are served by our healthcare professionals with high qualifications according to the pathology report that is reviewed by the medical oncologists and radiation oncologists who sit on this crucial committee.
