Plans for future
We are trying to turn Lung Clinic into Institute for Pulmonary Diseases. Under those circumstances on one place you can provide comprehensive diagnostic and management of all kinds of pulmonary diseases including surgical procedures witch is now under authority of Clinic for Special Services. Eventually, in future Institute, plan is to have more pulmologist but also internists, surgeons, oncologists, pathologists. Also, we are trying to provide care for patients with breast diseases. We want to underline that our idea has general support.
