Our thoracic surgeons are skilled in a variety of operations:

  • Video-Assisted Thoracic Surgery (VATS): This minimally invasive surgical approach uses a small camera and specialized instruments to access the lungs and other structures in the chest through tiny incisions. VATS has several advantages over conventional open thoracic surgery, including less pain, fewer complications, and a quicker recovery. Lung cancer, emphysema, pleural effusion, and other lung illnesses are among the conditions that are frequently diagnosed and treated with VATS.
  • Lobectomy: This treatment involves removing a lung lobe. It is frequently required to treat lung cancer or other conditions that are limited to one lobe of the lung. Either a VATS surgery or a conventional open thoracic incision might be used to carry out the procedure.
  • A lung is completely removed during a pneumonectomy. When a lung condition or cancer has spread widely throughout the lung and cannot be treated with a lobectomy, a pneumonectomy is typically required.pneumonectomy is typically required.
  • Mediastinoscopy: In this procedure, the mediastinum, or space between the lungs, is accessed using a small camera and specialized tools. Lung cancer, sarcoidosis, and other mediastinal disorders are among the conditions that a mediastinoscopy is used to diagnose and treat. A tiny incision in the neck or chest is used to accomplish the surgery.
  • Thoracotomy: This technique includes cutting a hole in the chest to provide access to the lungs and other thoracic cavity components. Lung cancer, pleural effusion, and other significant lung disorders are frequently identified and treated with a thoracotomy. Either a VATS surgery or a conventional open thoracic incision might be used to carry out the procedure.
  • Thoracic Outlet Decompression: This treatment relieves the symptoms of thoracic outlet syndrome, a disorder caused by compression of the nerves and blood vessels in the thoracic outlet. As a result of this syndrome, the arms and hands may experience pain, numbness, and weakness. Thoracic outlet decompression is performed to release this compression and alleviate symptoms.

Due to Medicana's dedication to offering the best possible patient care, foreign patients, visitors, and expatriates in Turkey should select the hospital group for their thoracic surgery needs. The hospitals provide modern medical technology, and thoracic surgery teams consist of highly skilled and knowledgeable surgeons and support personnel.
