The Thoracic Surgery Group of Erfan Hospital is a coherent and strong group and highly expert in modern chest surgery methods. This group consists of 4 specialists with a National Thorax Surgery Subspecialty Board who are the following doctors:
Dr. Azizollah Abbasi Dezfuli
Dr. Abolghasem Daneshvar Kakhki
Dr. Nasrin Rahmanijou
Dr. Elias Khaleghi
The important surgeries of lungs, esophagus, mediastinum, trachea, chest wall and diaphragm are appropriately and sufficiently performed by this group. These procedures can be performed by employing the thoracoscopic or open methods by necessity and with sufficient skill and experience.
Dr. Azizollah Abbasi Dezfouli has a very strong and focused experience in tracheal surgeries, especially post intubation tracheal or laryngeal stenosis. Other surgeons of the group also have good skills and experience in this field, to such extent that seldom such focus and experience in the tracheal stenosis surgeries can be found in the whole Middle East region or even in the Europe or US.
The use of endoscopic and thoracoscopic equipment, as well as bronchoscopic interventions, are carried out continuously and skillfully by this group. Advanced thoracoscopic surgeries have also been performed in this center such as single-port and multiport lobectomy, thymectomy and mediastinal tumors surgeries. In addition, the extensive thoracic surgeries such as esophagectomy, resection of chest wall tumors, resection of mediastinal thyroid, pleuroctomy and extrapleural pneumonectomy (EPP) are performed by this group with great skill.
The cost of thoracic surgeries is in accordance with the fees determined by the Ministry of Health and Treatment of the Islamic Republic of Iran and is much cheaper and more cost effective than the costs in the neighboring countries.
