Our department has been offering clinical services in the specialties of cardiovascular surgery (surgical treatment of ischemic heart diseases, valvular heart diseases, great and peripheral vessels, congenital heart diseases, etc.), general thoracic surgery (surgery of the lungs, chest wall & mediastinum) and pediatric surgery. Endovascular aneurismal repair using a stent graft has been carrying out in collaboration with the department of radiology. We also conduct research in the above specialties as well as educate and train medical students, residents and nurses.
Numbers of research projects are under way. Long-term results of molecularly-targeted therapy for lung cancer, valvular cardiac surgery in octogenarians are a few to mention among them.
Students of undergraduate and post-graduate medical and nursing schools are given a standard education. Apart from the training in the basic curriculum, they are also given an optimal exposure to the latest developments in the above specialties. We had received some trainees from Asian countries in the past as a part of our contribution to the international exchange.
