Thoracic Robotic Surgery
Until recently, if your doctor suggested lung surgery to remove part your lung, you needed to have a thoracotomy, which means the surgeon made an incision in your chest and seperated your rib cage to expose your lungs.
Today, if you have been diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer or other lung disease and need surgery, our highly trained ProMedica cardiothoracic surgeons offer you the alternative of robot-assisted lung surgery.
Using innovative robotic surgery techniques, thoracic robotic surgery provides the least invasive type of lung surgery available.
Thoracic Robotic Surgery Experiene
Thoracic robotic surgery is performed through several tiny incisions in your chest and offers all of the benefits of robot-assisted surgery. Most robotic lung-surgery patients experience:
- Better outcomes
- Shorter hospital stays
- Quicker recoveries
If your physician recommends lung surgery, ask if robotic surgery is right for you.
