Thoracic Surgery

Although thoracic surgery forms only a small part of paediatric surgery in general we have a fairly busy thoracic surgery practice. Parasitic infestation is the most common cause for thoracic referral in our region. Our department has built up extensive experience in the treatment of pulmonary hydatids. Suppurative lung disease is also frequently seen. Our thoracic surgery practice includes:

Ingested and Inhaled foreign bodies & Esophagoscopy & bronchoscopy
Diagnostic Bronchoscopy
Corrosive Esophageal Injury and Esophageal Replacement
Pleural Effusion and Empyema
Thoracic / Pulmonary Hydatid disease
Congenital Diaphragmatic hernia & Eventration
