About the department keyboard_arrow_down

The Section of Thoracic Surgery at the University Hospital Erlangen offers the entire spectrum of modern thoracic surgery. The patients with lung cancer undertake an interdisciplinary treatment within the comprehensive cancer program. Another focus is a special surgical laser technique that allows to preserve tissues (lung parenchyma), e.g. upon the treatment of lung metastases. The chief physician of the Section is Prof. Dr. med. Horia Sirbu. 

Other priorities of the Section at the University Hospital Erlangen include sparing correction of chest deformities, such as funnel chest, and a successful treatment of hyperhidrosis by means of the minimally invasive endoscopic sympathetic blockade.
