Thoracic Surgical Management

The conditions linked to this page are the common Thoracic Surgical problems within KwaZulu-Natal and the aim of the information in the linked pages is to give general guidelines in the management of these Thoracic Surgical conditions. Many of these problems are predominantly seen in the socially deprived population of our rural communities. It is hoped that the information given will help with the management of these patients, giving guidelines when it is appropriate to refer a patient. Also it is hoped that the information given will help the referring doctor to understand the processes involved in the treatment of these diseases. The present change in emphasis towards peripheral health care will result in more and more patients having shared care at the peripheral hospitals under the guidance of the Thoracic Clinics
