After completing another trip around the world, interviewing, inspecting and observing surgeons, the American Physicians Network is excited to announce the addition of several new network surgeons in the specialty of thoracic surgery. We are particularly pleased to announce that we have added several of the ‘modern masters of thoracic surgery’ – who are among the acknowledged top thoracic surgeons in the world. While these surgeons are new to APN, we have worked with all of these physicians in the past, and they were actively recruited for their surgical skills and advanced training in the area of thoracic surgery.
These surgeons are the very best, and most current in their field. Each of these surgeons was hand-picked and recruited due to their extensive experience in their respective areas; whether it is expertise in minimally invasive techniques such as uniportal VATS, subxifoid approaches to reduce pain, disability and recovery time or other specialty surgical treatments for various diseases of the lungs, pleural, mediastinum or thorax. One of our surgeons was recruited to provide patients with an additional facility for HITHOC. (This is the second HITHOC surgeon in our current roster).
This group of immensely talented and skilled thoracic surgeons is a roll-call of the best and brightest, and includes the inventor of uniportal thoracic surgery, Dr. Diego Gonzalez Rivas, Hong Kong legend, Dr. Alan Sihoe, HITHOC researcher, Dr. Hans – Stefan Hofmann and the founder of International VATS, Dr. Marco Scarci. APN will bring you more information about these and many of our other network providers in the future.
All of these surgeons are able to provide world-class care at a fraction of the cost of US-based treatment. Each of these surgeons has undergone an extensive vetting process which includes direct observation in the operating room.
