Tracheal surgery and reconstructions is our forte and we have the largest series of tracheal reconstructions in Karnataka.

The unit also specializes in Video Assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery and Mediastinoscopy (one of the few in the country) capable of performing major intra-thoracic surgical procedures through “key holes” with the help of a thoracoscope.

We have a considerable expertise in surgery for major mediastinal tumors, chest wall tumors and reconstructions. We are also well versed with esophageal surgery for cancer, strictures, etc.  Management of major cardiothoracic trauma due to road traffic accidents, assault and stab injuries, gunshots, etc., are some of the routinely handled procedures and surgeries. Due to our capacities of handling the most intricate cases with immense diligence, we have become a major referral centre for all types of thoracic surgical problems.
