About the department keyboard_arrow_down

The Department of Thoracic Surgery, Pneumology, Oncology, Sleep and Breathing Medicine under the direction of Prof. Dr. med Erich Stoelben offers a comprehensive treatment of all diseases of the chest (with the exception of heart). Through the interdisciplinary, timely and cooperative collaboration of different disciplines within the Academic Hospital Cologne-Merheim, the patients are offered diagnosis and medical care with the use of the best possible methods and an optimal schedule. 

In the field of thoracic surgery, the Hospital Cologne-Merheim annually performs over 3,300 chest interventions. The majority of patients of the Department suffer from malignant lung tumors and receive treatment within the framework of the certified Lung Cancer Center of Cologne-Merheim. There are interdisciplinary cancer consultations (involving pneumology, oncology, thoracic surgery, radiation therapy, pathology, radiology), where physicians develop individual treatment programs for each cancer patient. The Department uses multimodal treatment concepts (diagnosis – bronchoscopy – endobronchial ultrasound, neoadjuvant chemotherapy, surgery and adjuvant radiotherapy – stereotaxy). The Department of Thoracic Surgery, Pneumology, Oncology, Sleep and Breathing Medicine also specializes in parenchymal preserving surgery (sleeve resection). The Department under the direction of von Prof. Dr. med Erich Stoelben ranks among the leading German clinics. It should be noted that the removal of the entire part of the lung (pneumonectomy) is required only in rare cases. The objective of the treatment is a complete removal of the tumor. 

All Sections adhere to the certified quality management system. The Lung Cancer Center at the Academic Hospital Cologne-Merheim meets the quality criteria of the German Cancer Society and is the first in the region to have been certified by the German Cancer Society as the Lung Cancer Center.. The Weaning Center was awarded by the German Society for Pneumology and Respiratory Medicine.
