About the department keyboard_arrow_down

The Department of Thoracic Surgery at the HELIOS Hospital Hildesheim offers the full range of treatment for lung, thoracic and mediastinal diseases. A single team of the Cancer Center integrates thoracic surgeons, pulmonologists, oncologists and radiation therapists. Thanks to an effective combination of diagnostic methods and the latest approaches to both conservative and surgical treatment, the Department providestop-class comprehensive treatment.

The Department of Thoracic Surgery performs all surgical interventions on the lungs and thorax, except for the operation with the use of a heart-lung machine. 

In the field of lung surgery, the treatment of lung cancer is of particular importance. One of the main tasks of the HELIOS Hospital Hildesheim is a timely detection, accurate diagnosis and competent treatment of this common, solid tumor corresponding to all current recommendations. In this case, there are used minimally invasive endoscopic methods, operating techniques that preserve lung tissue, such as classical segmental resection and bronchoplasty, as well as resection of several organs. 

In addition, the HELIOS Hospital Hildesheim is especially focused on the treatment of lung metastases. The surgery can be performed within the framework of a comprehensive treatment program promoting the improvement of the prognosis of the disease. 

Along with the elimination of the focus of the disease, the primary objective of lung surgery is to preserve lung tissues as best as possible. With a large number of bronchoplastic resections (with the preservation of lung tissues by suturing peripheral parts of the lungs) and a minimal number of pneumonectomy (removal of the entire half of the lung),   the Department meets the current criteria of quality standards. 

The increase in the number of people with lung cancers, particularly the elderly, requires active cooperation with other disciplines of the HELIOS Hospital Hildesheim, such as Spine Surgery, Trauma Surgery, Plastic Surgery and Internal Medicine with Cardiology, Interventional Endoscopy and Oncology, as well as Radiation Therapy. The Cancer Center performs resection of metastases and thoracic interventions in order to treat diseases affecting a few organs.
