BRB Hospitals Limited has an International Standard Specialized Thoracic Surgery Department.

Reparation of organs placed in the thorax, or chest. The thoracic cavity lies between the neck and the diaphragm, and contains the heart and lungs (cardiopulmonary system), the esophagus, trachea, pleura, mediastinum, chest wall, and diaphragm.

Thoracic surgery repairs diseased or injured organs and tissues in the thoracic cavity; deals specifically with disorders of the lungs and esophagus e.g. Blunt chest trauma, lung cancer, and emphysema.

Tube Thoracostomy: Insertion of a tube (chest tube) into the pleural cavity to drain air, blood, bile, pus, or other fluids.
