Colonel Assoc. Prof. Dr. Nebojša Marić is a renowned thoracic surgery specialist, with a keen emphasis on minimally invasive video-assisted thoracoscopic surgeries (VATS). With over 15 years of experience in this niche field, Dr. Marić leads the Thoracic Surgery Department at the Military Medical Academy and holds an Associate Professorship at the Defense University’s Medical School in Belgrade.
Dr. Marić earned his medical degree from the University of Kragujevac in 1999, followed by his specialization at the Military Medical Academy. His career has been marked by extensive training in medical institutions worldwide, including in Italy, Germany, Spain, China, and Portugal, broadening his expertise in thoracic surgery.


Areas of expertise:

  • Minimally Invasive Video-Assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery (VATS)
  • Diagnosis and surgical treatment of lung cancer
  • Managing myasthenia gravis via thymectomy
  • Procedures like pleural biopsy, bronchoscopy, pleural tap, and pleurodesis

How this doctor can help:

Dr. Marić, along with his team, offers a comprehensive diagnostic and surgical program for patients with thoracic conditions, primarily lung cancer. Following a pathohistological diagnosis and disease confirmation, an oncological council assesses each case individually to determine if the patient is a suitable candidate for surgical treatment. Dr. Marić employs minimally invasive techniques that facilitate quicker patient recovery. Post-surgery, patients undergo postoperative rehabilitation in intensive care units until full recovery.

Professional philosophy and approach to patient care:

“Facing a diagnosis like lung cancer is never easy, and the support of family, friends, and a professional medical team is crucial. At our team in Sava Memorial Hospital, we provide the best care and support for patients in need of surgical intervention.”
