About The Ward

Thoracic Surgery ward specialises in complex treatment of patients with respiratory system, mediastinum and oesophagus diseases.

The ward is equipped in high class diagnostic equipment:

  • bronchofiberoscope (endoscopic diagnosis of lung lesions)
  • EBUS - endobronchial ultrasound (mainly lymphatic nodes - diagnosis of sarcoidosis or determination of the stage of progression of lung cancer)
  • computed tomograph

The operating theatres are equipped in modern devices for minimally invasive surgical procedures. We provide diagnostics using minimally invasive techniques:

  • video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery - examination of pleural cavity (diagnosing pleural lesions)
  • video-assisted mediastinoscopy - surgical removal of lymph nodes or lesion biopsy
  • VATS - video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery
  • TEMLA - transcervical extended mediastinal lymphadenectomy

The ward currently has 25 beds.

Specialists from the ward consult patients in the Thoracic Surgery Outpatient Clinic.
