Thoracic Surgery Clinic
Since November 2007, the University Hospital Basel has had its own Thoracic Surgery Clinic under the direction of Prof. Didier Lardinois. In this time, decisive conceptual innovations have been introduced, especially in the fields of minimally invasive thoracic surgery and the treatment of patients with lung cancer.

In recent years, the treatment of lung cancer has become increasingly complex. At the University Hospital Basel, we have an international competence center in the form of the Lung Center, in which the experts of all disciplines involved are integrated in order to plan and carry out the optimal treatment for each patient in accordance with the current international guidelines.
An absolute prerequisite for thoracic surgery is extensive training and special experience in the required surgical techniques. This is the only way to ensure a high quality of treatment and a low surgical risk for patients. The great advantage of the University Hospital Basel is the possibility to perform technically demanding operations in collaboration with other surgical disciplines (cardiac surgery, abdominal surgery, ENT, etc.).
