Areas of expertise

Cardiac Surgery Mini Invasive

The development of minimally invasive techniques is transforming this specialty. The practice of small incisions in the chest facilitate access to regions that were previously reached through large procedures. Devices capable of generating high resolution and 3D images, instruments made with new materials that offer greater range and flexibility.

Thoracic surgery Mini Invasive

Thoracic Surgery identifies and treats diseases that attack the internal organs of the chest. It is one of the medical specialties that most has benefited from the technological advances that have taken place in recent years. O The use of minimally invasive techniques has helped millions of people around the world to benefit from more effective treatments, less traumatic, less painful and with quick recovery.

Hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis is an exaggerated and unnecessary increase in sweating, which essentially affects the hands, armpits and feet. The sweating process is necessary for the control of body temperature and is regulated by the sympathetic system, however, about 1.7% of the population has an inappropriate functioning of this system, in which exaggerated stimulus are sent to the sweat glands that produce sweating. intense in certain areas of the body, thus resulting in hyperhidrosis.

Chest wall deformities

Congenital deformities of the chest wall are a very common pathology in our population and increasingly valued in recent years. Technological and digital evolution has allowed young people to research and learn more about this pathology, contributing to a greater understanding of the deformity and its treatment.

Uniportal robotic surgery

The uniportal access for robotic thoracic surgery presents itself as a natural evolution of minimally invasive thoracic surgery (MITS). It was developed by surgeons who pioneered the uniportal video-assisted thoracic surgery (U-VATS) in all its aspects following the same principles of a single incision by using the latest robotic technology – daVinci Xi platform.
