Specialized in: thoracic surgery

The department of thoracic surgery offers the comprehensive range of modern, specialized medical measurement for the treatment of diseases of the lungs, the thorax and the mediastinum. The therapy has close integration of diagnostic procedures and the latest techniques in the conservative and surgical treatment.

The treatment of lung cancer has a prominent position. The early detection and secure of this common solid tumour and the delivering of a professional, guideline-based therapy is one of our priorities. Besides minimally invasive endoscopic surgery ("keyhole surgery"), lung tissue-saving operations, such as classical and segmental Broncho plastic operations, and inter-institutional resections come also into use.

Another focus is on the treatment of lung metastases ("scattered flock"). They can be operated as part of an overall concept, which contributes to an improvement in disease prognosis.

Typical thoracic surgical procedures are:

  • Pacemaker surgery
  • Defibrillator interventions
  • Lung Surgery
  • Tracheobronchial reconstructions of congenital malformations
  • Operations for thoracic trauma
  • Esophageal surgery
  • Thoracoscopic surgery
