How this doctor can help:

Patients turn to Dr. Milan Savić for symptoms that may indicate early stages of lung cancer, such as persistent coughs, changes in breathing, chest pain, unexplained weight loss, and fatigue. Dr. Savić specializes in surgical interventions in the first two stages of lung cancer when the chance for complete recovery is highest. For patients in more advanced stages of the disease, a combination of chemotherapy, biological therapy, and immunotherapy is used to reduce the tumor to a level where surgery becomes feasible. This approach not only offers patients a chance for treatment but also significantly improves their quality of life.

Professional philosophy and approach to patient care:

“Early detection of lung cancer is crucial, and any change in cough intensity, presence of blood or pain during coughing are clear signs that it’s necessary to consult a doctor. In only 25% of cases, surgical intervention is possible, highlighting the importance of early diagnosis. With the advancement of minimally invasive procedures, such as video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery, patients experience quicker recovery, less pain, and better aesthetic outcomes, while achieving exceptional therapeutic results in treating early stages of the disease.”
