It is the teaching base of Chongqing Medical University and North Sichuan Medical College, etc., and also undertakes the task of national standardized residency training and provincial general practitioner post training. The center has strong technical force, advanced medical equipment, and one of the best talent teams in the central area of Sichuan Province which consists of high-quality and highly educated medical professionals of different ages.
Ward 1: Department of Thoracic Surgery
The Department of Thoracic Surgery has set the development directions of "comprehensive treatment of thoracic tumor which is based on surgery" and "thoracic minimally invasive operations". It currently carries out a variety of routine thoracic surgeries such as radical operations for lung cancer, esophageal cancer, and mediastinal tumors, as well as difficult and complex thoracic surgeries including double sleeve lobectomy, intrapericardial pneumonectomy, lung volume reduction, bronchial sleeve resection, pulmonary arterioplasty,3-port esophageal cancer excision, chest wall reconstruction after giant chest wall tumor resection, etc.
The department is one of the specialties which carry out minimally invasive thoracic surgeries earlier in Sichuan. At present, various endoscopic surgeries which are carried out routinely include thoracoscopic pulmonary lobectomy, thoracoscopic pulmonary segmentectomy, thoracoscopic resection of esophageal leiomyoma, endoscopic hiatal hernia repair, Nuss procedure for pectus excavatum, totally endoscopic radical resection of esophageal carcinoma, and bronchopleural fistula treatment with fiberoptic bronchoscope, etc. Its areas of expertise also include microwave radiofrequency ablation of malignant lesions in lung and operative treatment of various types of thoracic traumas.
