Thoracic Surgeon & Lung Transplant Surgeon, F.E.T.C.S. (European Board-certified Thoracic Surgeon)

I am a senior european-board certified thoracic surgeon. My major interests are surgery for lung cancer, esophageal cancer, chest wall tumors, and mediastinal tumors. I perform majorly MIS (Uniportal VATS) procedures. And also, I can perform bronchoscopy, esophagoscopy, and mediastinoscopy very efficiently.

Besides, I perform minimal invasive pectus surgeries for both pectus excavatum and pectus carinatum (Nuss & Abramson’s procedures).

Additionally, I have achieved a surgical fellowship in the lung transplantation program in Toronto which is headed by Prof. Shaf Keshavjee. I have involved in 89 recipient procedures (I was the first surgeon in 49 of the cases) and almost 60 retrieval procedures including both dbd and dcd donors.
