Cardiothoracic hybrid surgery

Cardiothoracic hybrid surgery

Thoracic surgery specialists are involved in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the chest organs, including the heart, lungs, pleura, diaphragm and oesophagus. When a chest injury occurs, air enters the pleural cavity and blood accumulate. This contributes to the compression of the lung and leads to respiratory failure. The patient can die quite quickly. The doctor performs an open operation and removes the effects of an injury.

Israel's leading Tel Aviv Medical Clinic has the best chest surgery department in the country. Our department is equipped with modern equipment that allows the use of unique methods of therapy. Our doctors undergo special training annually in foreign research centres. We try to provide each patient with round-the-clock care and control.

How are diseases treated?

To eliminate dangerous diseases of the chest organs, doctors use the following methods of therapy:

  • Modern diagnostic and surgical treatment of chest pathologies;
  • Carrying out minimally invasive operations;
  • Surgical treatment of myasthenia gravis;
  • Treatment of traumatic complications;
  • Conducting reconstructive operations and others.

Our specialists use an integrated approach to therapy. Thus, our patients will be able to get advice from other specialized specialists. The main method of treatment is an operation to open the chest or the use of minimally invasive endoscopic methods. After the procedure, the patient is monitored by the doctors for some time. After a while, the patient undergoes a second examination to evaluate the treatment.

If you suspect that the diagnosis is incorrect, contact the specialist of the leading Israeli clinic Tel Aviv Medical Clinic, which has all the necessary arsenal of diagnostic and therapeutic agents. Diagnosis of most diseases of the chest organs, including lung cancer, is largely based on such studies as computed tomography and fibre bronchoscopy. In our clinic, it is possible to perform video with maximum image clarity and diagnostic value of the study, taking a tissue/tumour sample (biopsy) for histological examination.
