Department of thoracic surgery
The department of thoracic surgery at Johanna Etienne Hospital Neuss deals with all lung and bronchi diseases, including malignant conditions. Qualified doctors have huge experience in benign and malignant tumours of the chest, inflammation in the chest and chest trauma. Thanks to interdisciplinary cooperation with radiologists, cardiologists, oncologists, pulmonologists, and anesthesiologists, the department ensures high treatment quality. Furthermore, the department is equipped with the latest modern computer tomography, allowing accurate diagnostic procedures and therapeutic manipulations following national and international guidelines. In addition to medical care, doctors and nursing staff make sure that the patients feel comfortable during their stay in the hospital.
The treatment spectrum of thoracic surgery covers minor interventions such as removing tissue samples for histological clarification of unclear processes in the chest or installing drains through to complex and technically demanding tumour operations. A particular focus is minimally invasive surgical techniques (video-assisted thoracoscopy or mediastinoscopy). This surgical procedure, which is gentler on the patient, is used in most scenarios.
