What treatments for lung conditions are available at Bupa Cromwell Hospital?

  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Emphysema
  • Chronic chest pain

Surgical treatments

Our thoracic surgeons can perform a full range of thoracic procedures including minimally-invasive thoracic surgery (known as VATS - where the surgeon uses a video camera to guide them) through to complex procedures such as:

  • chest wall resections

  • great vessels resection

  • diaphragm resection

  • sleeve resection.

Conditions that can be treated by our thoracic surgeons include:

  • pneumothorax (collapsed lung)

  • emphysema

  • chest trauma or chest wall deformities

  • congenital thoracic malformations

  • pleural empyema (infection)

  • palmar hyperhydrosis (sympathectomy).


Cancer treatments

Thoracic surgeons also treat a wide range of tumours involving the thoracic organs (lungs, trachea, bronchi, thymus and esophagus) or the chest wall (ribs, diaphragm and pleura).

The treatment of thoracic cancers requires specialists from different disciplines and departments to work closely together. Bupa Cromwell Hospital offers a multidisciplinary service for diagnosing and treating benign and malignant tumours of the chest including:

  • lung cancer

  • malignant mesothelioma (pleural cancer)

  • tracheal and bronchial tumours

  • thymoma and other tumours of the mediastinum

  • secondary lung cancer (lung metastases)

  • malignant pleural effusion

  • thoracic sarcoma

  • neurogenic tumours of the chest.


Why choose Bupa Cromwell Hospital for the Treatment of Lung Conditions?

State-of-the-art scans including CT, MRI and PET/CT scans of the chest help doctors to reach the most accurate diagnosis.

Our cancer specialists offer advanced radiotherapy treatments, chemotherapy and targeted therapy for thoracic cancers of all stages.

Our surgeons are experts in the management of difficult thoracic cases, and have expertise in minimally-invasive or ‘keyhole’ surgery for lung cancer and mediastinal tumours.
