We treat a wide range of conditions from malignant diseases (lung cancer, pleural mesothelioma) to benign diseases in which lung transplantation is needed. We perform approximately 500 operations a year. We aim to perform minimally invasive procedures where possible, thus 80% of our operations are performed as thoracoscopic surgery. In the case of advanced lung cancer we favour multidisciplinary treatments with anticancer drugs, radiation therapy and surgery. Dr. Hiroshi Date, who has performed approximately 3,000 operations become director in October, 2007. Under his expert guidance our team continues to offer best available treatment options.
