Uniportal video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) is the emerging technique in the modern thoracic surgery practice in Assiut University Hospitals in Egypt we try to keep up with the cutting edge of knowledge to deliver the best available service to our patient. So we invite Dr. Diego Gonzalez-Rivas the world pioneer surgeon in uniportal VATS approach to initiate a uniportal VATS program starting with a workshop with live surgery. The workshop was attended by 84 thoracic surgeons from all across Egypt with a high motivation for adopting the technique in the everyday practice. We believe that uniportal will be the first choice approach for thoracic surgeon in Egypt in the upcoming year.
