Thoracic surgery

Thoracic surgery Center, as well as the rest of the centers in CODRA Hospital, follows the latest trends in diagnostics and treatment. Within the shortest time frame, in just a few days, we establish the diagnosis, by conducting all of the invasive and noninvasive procedures. After completing the diagnostics,  the consilium comprised out of thoracic surgeon, pulmonologist and, if needs be, oncologist make the decision and propose the further treatment or surgery.  Within the shortest time frame we start the necessary treatment and/or perform surgery, following the latest doctrines in the field of thoracic surgery and with the application of the cutting edge technology. All of the aforementioned shortens the treatment time and significantly increases the chance of successful healing.

Within the Thoracic Center we conduct a complete non invasive and invasive diagnostics (X Ray MSCT,  the latest ultrasound with fusing scanner images or magnet with the live ultrasound image, bronchoscopies with biopsy, mediastinoscopy with biopsy, lung and pleural biopsies, pathohistological findings…)
