Stuart Percy Farnborough Oct 24, 2018
Verified review. The patient was treated of lung cancer in Bumrungrad International Hospital

The doctors and nurses are top class well trained professionals - the only major problem, especially with the very kind and helpful nurses was that most of them speak very little English, so it was extremely difficult to have conversations with the ladies - a great pity! Otherwise I was very satisfied with the treatment in this highly modern hospital.

Verified review. The patient was treated of lung cancer in Bumrungrad International Hospital

I was extremely satisfied with everything that happened to me at this wonderful hospital. I don't think that there is a hospital in Asia which can compare with this one. From the doctors to the nurses and all other personell in this hospital ALL are competent, very polite and friendly - the only small criticism that I have is that unfortunately many don't speak English very well, that's a great shame.

FAQ about Lung cancer surgery

What is a lung resection?

A lung resection is an operation to remove part or all of an organ. In most cases, doctors resort to the procedure for lung cancer.

What is the difference between lung cancer surgery at home and abroad?

Specialists of foreign clinics perform resection using video-assisted thoracoscopic VATS method. They perform manipulations through 2-5 incisions of 2.5 cm. After such a procedure, the patient recovers faster than after a traditional open operation.

Features of surgery to remove a lung for cancer in different countries

We have identified the 3 most popular directions for surgery to remove a lung for cancer among residents of the CIS.

Germany

In German clinics, the accuracy of diagnosis is 100%. Thanks to this, German doctors correctly determine the scope of the intervention and preserve the healthy tissues of the organ as much as possible.

Lung resection in Turkey is qualified surgeons and 85% of operations without complications at an affordable price. The cost of lung cancer surgery is lower here than in Israel and Germany.

Israel

In Israeli clinics, patients are operated on by experienced and qualified doctors. They are trained and trained in leading medical centers in the US and Europe. Thanks to this, Israeli specialists are improving the methods of conducting operations.

What are our patients guided by when choosing a clinic?

When choosing a hospital for the operation, they are guided by:

  • experience and qualifications of a thoracic surgeon;
  • intervention method;
  • accreditation and certificates of the clinic;
  • reviews of surgery for lung cancer at the medical center.

Operation types

Atypical (marginal) lung resection

Excision of the affected lung tissue without taking into account the localization of blood vessels and the structure of the bronchi.

Advantages: allows you to preserve the healthy part of the organ as much as possible.

Disadvantages: The procedure can cause severe bleeding and organ dysfunction.

Typical lung resection

Excision of the affected part of the organ, taking into account the anatomical features of the lungs. Types of procedure:

  • wedge resection - removal of the neoplasm and a small amount of healthy tissue;
  • segmentectomy - removal of a segment of the lung;
  • lobectomy - removal of a lobe of an organ;
  • bilobectomy - resection of the right lung. During the procedure, doctors remove 2 lobes;
  • pneumonectomy - complete removal of the lung.

open surgery for lung cancer

Operation abroad: nuances

  • How much does lung cancer surgery cost?
