Pulmonology, Thoracic Surgery, and Pathologies

Pulmonology is a medical discipline that allows for the diagnosis and treatment of various lung pathologies, which cause respiratory difficulties and other health issues.

Among the most common lung diseases treated by our pulmonologists are lung tumors (both benign and malignant), chronic respiratory diseases (such as asthma, bronchiectasis), respiratory infections (bronchitis, tuberculosis, pneumonia), and breathing difficulties.

Our multidisciplinary medical team in Tunisia provides patients with their expertise in diagnosing lung diseases and offering the best treatments based on the patient’s condition.

Lung Surgery: Our Thoracic Surgery Interventions in Tunisia

In Tunisia, thoracic and pulmonary surgeries are performed by experienced and highly qualified surgeons in state-of-the-art operating rooms. With our specialized medical team in pulmonology, your treatment will be conducted under optimal conditions.

Among the operations performed in our clinics are:

  • Lung Tumor Surgery : Lung tumor surgeries aim to remove lung nodules. This type of surgery is known as cancer surgery, as its objective is to remove the tumor completely. The operation may also involve removing the draining lymph nodes and eliminating the disease if the lymph nodes are affected ;
  • Pneumonectomy : This surgery involves the removal of an entire lung to treat certain diseases that cannot be treated with other types of treatments ;
  • Tuberculosis Treatment : Tuberculosis is an infectious disease caused by bacteria that primarily affect the respiratory system. The best remedy for this disease is the administration of antibiotics. To determine the appropriate combination of antibiotics, certain medical examinations, including a biopsy, are conducted to analyze the presence and spread of the infection in the patient ;
  • Surgery for Thoracic Wall Tumors : This surgery involves resection of the thoracic wall when the lungs are affected (in the presence of lung cancer) or to treat membranous deformations ;
  • Sleeve Lobectomy : In this operation, the lung disease is treated by removing the affected lobe. This option is chosen when a pneumonectomy, the removal of the entire lung, can be avoided ;

Thoracic surgery is a surgical specialty that treats conditions of the chest cage, lungs, mediastinum, trachea, and esophagus. This surgery can be performed through minimally invasive or conventional techniques, depending on the condition to be treated and the patient’s situation. Before undergoing thoracic surgery, it is important to understand the indications and risks associated with the procedure. It is also crucial to choose a qualified and experienced surgeon to perform the operation. In Tunisia, the prices of thoracic surgery are competitive compared to those in other countries while ensuring high-quality care.

How does thoracic surgery procedure take place?

Thoracic surgery can be performed under general or regional anesthesia, depending on the procedure and the patient’s preferences. During the operation, the surgeon will make an incision in the chest to access thoracic organs such as the lungs, heart, or esophagus. The procedure may involve organ repair, removal of a part of the organ, or replacement with a prosthesis. After the operation, the patient will be closely monitored to detect any bleeding, infection, or complications. The recovery time can vary depending on the procedure and the overall health of the patient. The surgeon will provide specific instructions for postoperative care and follow-up.

Postoperative care for thoracic surgery

Thoracic surgery is a procedure that may require several days of hospitalization depending on the complexity of the intervention and the patient’s health condition. After the operation, the patient is often placed under close surveillance to ensure that there are no postoperative complications such as bleeding, infection, or respiratory problems. It is possible that the patient may need a thoracic drain for several days to remove excess fluid or air accumulated in the chest. Pain medication is usually prescribed to relieve pain and discomfort. The resumption of daily activities will depend on the nature of the intervention and the healing of the surgical wound. It is important to follow the surgeon’s instructions for the recovery period, which may include recommendations for wound care, activity restrictions, and follow-up visits.

Results of thoracic surgery

Thoracic surgery is performed to treat various conditions affecting thoracic organs such as the lungs, pleura, esophagus, thymus, and thoracic wall. The results of thoracic surgery depend on the treated condition and the extent of the surgical intervention. It is important to follow the surgeon’s instructions for the postoperative recovery period to maximize the chances of complete recovery and achieve the best possible results. In most cases, patients can expect a significant improvement in their quality of life after successful thoracic surgery. Feel free to contact us for more details.
