The South’s leader in minimally invasive and robotic cardiovascular and thoracic surgery

Robot Assisted Thoracotomy Surgery

What is Robot Assisted Thoracotomy Surgery?

A minimally invasive thoracotomy is a small 1-3 inch incision between the ribs that can be used for a wide range of lung, heart and pleural space procedures. Most lung and many open heart operations can be done via a minimally invasive incision. Avoiding a large incision between the ribs decreases postoperative pain, blood loss and recovery time.

Frequently we can perform lung mediastinal and pleural operations using tiny one inch “port” incisions with the aid of a thoroscope small camera and special instruments, frequently robotic instruments. This further decreased operator trauma.
