Japanese Association for Thoracic Surgery (JATS) is established in 1948, the Japanese Association for Thoracic Surgery is the oldest association of surgery in Japan. In the earliest days, 200 or so participants discussed issues mainly related to lung surgery. The Association was a leading organization to cradle the development of heart surgery in Japan beginning in the latter half of the 1950s. It is also an incontrovertible fact that the Association has supported the development of thoracic surgery and esophagus surgery from the outset. In the 1970s, the Japanese Society for Cardiovascular Surgery, the Japanese Society for Vascular Surgery, the Japan Esophageal Society, and the Japanese Association for Chest Surgery was established. Their achievements in their respective fields have been truly outstanding. This, however, does not in any way detract from the importance that the Association has in integrating the three thoracic disciplines. As the mainstream organization in the field of thoracic surgery in Japan, the Association must continue to fulfill its heavy responsibilities.

In the 72nd Annual Scientific Meeting of the Japanese Association for Thoracic Surgery (JATS), the delegates enjoyed the state-of-art presentations and lectures from more than 30 top world experts. These sessions focused on emerging technology across the spectrum of cardiothoracic surgery, iPS research, three-dimensional printing techniques, developing English skills in Japan. The participants also learned the updated cutting-edge technology and skills from Japanese and international renowned cardiothoracic surgeons.

Dr Thomas is not only well recognized for his surgical skills but also appreciated for his oratory skills. He is a gem of a person and very popular for his patient caring nature.
