About the department keyboard_arrow_down

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.
