A remarkable feature of Maharaja Agrasen Hospital is dedicated & exclusive General Thoracic Surgery Department dealing with diseased or injured organs of chest specifically disorders of lungs and esophagus (food pipe) and trachea (wind pipe). Lung cancer, emphysema, LVRS for advanced COPD, complications of lung tuberculosis and chest trauma are some of the many clinical indications for thoracic surgery. The department is famous for successfully managing patients with chest injuries including injuries of the heart.

In cooperation with other departments, complete diagnostic work up of thoracic surgical patient is done in-house including pulmonary function test, pulmonary angiography, bronchoscopy (both rigid & video-assisted), spiral CT scan with 3-D reconstruction, MRI, Arterial blood gas analysis etc.

Staffed by highly trained and experienced Cardiothoracic Surgeons, department is fully equipped with most modern facilities for diagnosis and geared to undertake all sorts of advanced general thoracic operations for various infective, noninfective, post-tubercular and cancerous diseases of lung, wind pipe, chest wall, mediastinum etc. in all age groups starting from infancy to ripe old age comparable to international standards.

To help patients with chronic, crippling respiratory dysfunction as in bullous lung disease & advanced emphysema, lung volume reduction surgery is done routinely. Plans are being envisaged to add lung transplantation services that shall further augment the thoracic surgery department.

Dept is also one of few in Northern India to undertake minimally invasive thoracic surgery (Key hole surgery). Apart from diagnostic mediastinoscopy and thoracoscopy, video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) is routinely done for a wide variety of diseases inside chest cavity. A sample list of operations done using VATS include Bullectomy, pleurectomy, Ablation of hemothorax, Ablation of empyema thoracis, Thymectomy, Wedge resection of lung, Esophageal myotomy, Lung biopsy, Pleural biopsy, Mediastinal lymph node biopsy, pericardial biopsy etc.
