Lucknow, Oct 27 (TNA) Surgery for chest diseases including lung cancer will now be done easily in the state capital as chief minister Yogi Adityanath will inaugurate a separate department of Thoracic and Vascular Surgery in KGMU, Lucknow on Thursday. It is claimed that UP is the first state to start separate departments of Cardiac, Thoracic and Vascular Surgery.
Medical institutions across the country including AIIMS, SGPGI so far have Cardio, Thoracic and Vascular (CTVS) departments. Here the entire focus remains on cardiac surgery.
Still, there is a long list of patients. In view of this, KGMU decided to separate these departments. At present, only Chest Institute, New Delhi and Bangalore have separate thoracic surgery departments in the country.
