THORAX SURGEON - THESSALONIKI

Dr. Michalis Klimatsidas is a thoracic surgeon, MD of the Cardiothoracic Surgery Clinic of AUTH. Initially trained as a military doctor, he continued his further training abroad, where he lived for several years. After obtaining his specialization and after many years of experience in patient cases in the United Kingdom, where he was a consultant director of thoracic surgery in Glasgow, he brings his education and expertise to our country. Specifically, in Thessaloniki, his hometown, he receives patients at Agios Loukas in Panorama of Thessaloniki. In collaboration with the Agios Loukas clinic, he offers patients the possibility of minimally invasive thoracic surgery, as well as robotic thoracic surgery, which is his specialty and his "part", as he calls it.

The specialty of doctor Michalis Klimatsidas is minimally invasive thoracic surgery with the single-hole technique, Uniportal Vats, as well as robotic thoracoscopic surgery, Robotic VATS (RATS). Minimally invasive thoracic surgery in the field of robotics is something very new and certainly a forerunner for the Greek data. Dr Klimatidas with the help of his team at the "AGIOS LOUKAS" Clinic, performed the first robotically assisted lobectomy with the Da Vinci X system. This is the first operation in Greece, Cyprus and the Balkans with this specific robotic surgery system, and also the first robotic thoracic surgery operation that has ever been performed in Northern Greece by a Greek thoracic surgeon.

Robotic thoracic surgery – RATS is the part of minimally invasive thoracic surgery that is now done with the help of a robotic system.

LOBECTOMY-DILOBECTOMY PNEUMONECTOMY

A lobectomy is the removal of one of the five main parts of the lung, known as the 'lobes'. It is a common treatment for non-small cell lung cancer. 

PNEUMOTHORAS SURGERY

 The most common treatment of pneumothorax is drainage, that is, removing air from where it shouldn't be, with the help of a tube. When this remains or re-creates then the solution is surgery.

RESPIRATORY FAILURE SURGERY

Endoscopic lung volume reduction (ELVR) with endobronchial valves is a form of minimally invasive procedure to treat people with severe emphysema.

ENDOBRONCHIAL ABLATION OF SMALL LUNG METASTATIC TUMORS

Thermal ablation is a minimally invasive option for the treatment of lung malignancies in patients who are unfit or unwilling to undergo surgery and stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT). 

THORACIC SURGERY WITHOUT INCISIONS-VATS

Minimally invasive thoracoscopic surgery – VATS (Video Assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery) is chest surgery without an open incision.

A pneumonectomy is a type of surgery to remove one of the lungs (right or left) due to cancer, trauma, or some other condition.

THYMECTOMY

The term thymectomy describes the surgical removal of the thymus gland. Thymectomy may be recommended because the gland has a tumor (thymoma) or to improve symptoms of myasthenia gravis (MG).
