Assoc. Prof. Erkan Yıldırım
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).
Due to the presence of numerous organs and tissues in different structures in mediastinum; a wide variety of neoplastic masses, cystic lesions and infectious diseases might occur.
They are the cancers caused by prolonged exposure of the lung cells to various types of cancer-causing agents (cigarette, air pollution, radon gas). 75% of patients can be diagnosed very late when the disease is advanced.
Argentinian thoracic surgeon Dr. Horacio Abramson was the first to adapt the Nuss technique (minimally invasive technique to treat pectus carinatum patients).
Your smiles are our greatest inspiration after the operation!
