Our commitment is to promote, through the Surveys, a transparent and democratic approach to medical-surgical practice.

Since 1993, we have tried to know, first through our meetings and then through surveys, the attitudes and needs of thoracic surgeons across Europe and, often, also through colleagues' opinions from all over the world.

The ESTS surveys range from clinical-surgical practice to research and training. Most of the results are published in renowned journals impacting the clinical thoracic surgery daily practice worldwide.
