I am very pleased to welcome you to the official website of the Association of Thoracic Surgeons of Ukraine. The Association was founded in 2009. But the way to its official status lasted for many years. Thoracic surgery is a relatively young and at the same time,
one of the most complex and advanced medical specialties. Thoracic surgery has reached many heights and has entered into the competitive level, recognized by Europe during 50 years of its formation in Ukraine. Since this time, brought up two generations of doctors who have devoted themselves to the noblest of occupations – the treatment of patients with diseases and traumas of the chest, esophagus and cardia of the stomach.
Despite the seemingly rather narrow circle of doctors who are united by our Association, the doors of our organization are open to physicians of other specializations. After all, our unity in the various fields of medicine is based on the common values: service to others, caring about their health and quality of life.
Today the Association is considered as an important and perspective partner of the European Society for Thoracic Surgeons. Close friendly ties bind members of our association with numerous of the thoracic schools in Russia, Belarus and other former Soviet republics and the Middle East. In the near future we hope to establish contacts with colleagues from Asia, Africa and America.
We created this site to inform visitors about the latest scientific (foreign and domestic) developments in the field of thoracic surgery and related disciplines, information on events for doctors of Ukraine and the world, to protect the interests of both doctors and patients.
We hope that you, dear visitors, will find it interesting and useful, and that it will be for us all to an effective communication platform.
Please contact us if you need additional information, we are ready to assist you with any questions. And we'll be glad if you share with us any suggestions or ideas that can improve the quality of our work for human benefit.
