Thoracic Surgery

About us

Our department offers medical treatment including mainly surgical interventions. Multidisciplinary therapy, such as operation with chemotherapy and/or radiation is perform for treating lung and a thymic cancers. Number of operations is from 250 to 300 cases a year (Lung cancer, 100-110 cases; Metastatic lung tumors, 50-60 cases; Mediastinal tumors, 30 cases; Cystic lung diseases, 50 cases). Almost all cases have been performed by thoracoscopic surgery. Complete video-assisted thoracoscopic segmentectomy or subsegmentectomy with referring to patients’ individual virtual 3-D pulmonary models is performed for both early stage lung cancer and metastatic lung tumors. For primary lung cancer cases such as mediastinal tumors and myasthenia gravis, robotic-assisted resections have started in 2012. Various procedures, such as bronchoscopic laser therapy, airway stent, and catheter intervention are performed for many thoracic diseases.
