Chest surgery or thoracic surgery covers diseases that affect the entire chest cavity (the chest organs): bronchi, ribs, diaphragm, esophagus, mediastinum, pleura, lungs, trachea and sternum, with the exception of the heart and great vessels to which cardiovascular surgery is referred.
The training of the general thoracic surgeon in Mexico is 14 years, one of the oldest specialties in our country with previous training in general surgery. Being a specialty where various organs are involved, there is a close relationship and collaboration with the different surgical or non-surgical specialties such as: gastroenterology, oncology, pulmonology in order to offer a multidisciplinary therapeutic approach.
