Verified review. The patient was treated of lung cancer in Wiener Privatklinik

Very fast reaction from Bookimed in communication. Initial discussion was for an appointment in AKH and subsequently we have been forwarded to the Privatklinik. The Klinik looks very well managed. We still did not proceed with the treatment and I'm not currently able to share opinion about the Clinic itself and the treatment (will come back soon, once have treatment there). I've been in the Wiener Privatklinik for a consultation. I manage to meet the exact doctors/professors for which I was looking for a contact and did a good job. The whole story was organized and managed by Bookimed with care for the patient. Angelina Ivanenko was my contact in Bookimed and even she was on vacation for the Christmas holidays she did not put on hold the communication. For us this was very important that we are not losing time.

Disadvantages: the operation leaves a large scar. Recovery takes up to 2 weeks.

Video-assisted thoracoscopic lobectomy (VATS)

The doctor performs the procedure through 3-5 incisions up to 2.5 cm. Through one incision, he inserts a tube with a camera that controls the course of the procedure. Through the remaining 2 incisions, he performs manipulations with special instruments.

ВАТС лобэктомия при раке легких

Advantages: the procedure leaves small scars. Recovery is 2-3 times faster than after open surgery.

Preparing for the operation

  • blood analysis;
  • chest CT;
  • sampling and laboratory examination of tumor tissues;
  • positron emission computed tomography (PET-CT).

The course of the procedure

During the operation, the patient is under general anesthesia. Depending on the type of lobectomy, the surgeon performs an incision 8-20 cm long or 3 incisions of 2.5 cm each, and removes a lobe of the lung.

Duration of lobectomy

The intervention takes 2 to 3 hours.

Rehabilitation after removal of part of the lung

The duration of hospitalization after removal of a lung lobe for cancer depends on the technique. After an open operation, a person stays in the clinic for 1-2 weeks, after a low-traumatic operation - 4-5 days.
