Mr Kostas Papagiannopoulos
Senior Consultant Thoracic Surgeon
MD, MBCHB, MMED THORAX, CTH
I am a senior consultant thoracic surgeon based in Leeds. I perform minimally invasive surgery for lung cancer.
I established the minimally invasive surgery program in chest surgery in Leeds in 2006. The Department is now world known for performing complex operations with keyhole surgery.
I am recognised internationally as one of the most experienced surgeons in the management of lung cancer, chest wall pathology and airway management.
I receive referrals nationally and internationally and I have proctored for several teams in European Institutions. I regularly hold conferences, offering second opinion for complex lung cancer cases and trauma cases of the chest.
I have served in several leadership positions and was the President of the European Society of Thoracic surgeons in 2018.
I have remained passionate in establishing and retaining a first-class service in Leeds, with the patients holding the core position in my practice. One of my main drives is to connect with patients and families and establish a relationship of mutual confidence and respect.
I continue to teach the young generation with passion and have organised or co-chaired several conferences and courses in all continents.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Kostas Papagiannopoulos at Spire include:
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at Spire Leeds Hospital.
