Esophageal diseases (esophageal cancer, tumor, reflux esophagitis, etc.), lung diseases (lung cancer, pneumothorax, tuberculosis, inflammatory lung diseases, etc.), mediastinaldiseases (mediastinaltumors, myasthenia gravis, goiter, etc.), thoracic diseases (traumatic chest, hemothorax, rib fracture, empyema, chest walls, thoracic pain etc.) and hyperhidrosis
These diseases have high incidence because of worsening air pollution and change in diet, and give lots of pain to patients and their families, as shown in the names like heart diseases, tuberculosis, pneumonia, and lung cancer.
With helps of sophisticated equipments, we are dedicated to treatment and control of diseases through early detection and long-built surgical experiences, and are committed to developing advanced treatment techniques through novel and diverse research. For not only treatment and recovery, but also for cosmetic consideration, the minimal invasive surgery (micro thoracic endoscope) is used to elevate patient's satisfaction.
