Our surgeons are providing robotic-assisted thoracic surgery for a variety of lung, esophageal, and mediastinal diseases. Robotic surgery can offer improved precision and visualization in certain patients. Smaller minimally-invasive incisions may lead to shorter hospital stays, decreased postoperative pain, and a quicker recovery.
Diseases being treated with robotic-assisted thoracic surgery:
- Acid reflux
- Lung cancer
- Mediastinal masses and cysts
- Myasthenia gravis
- Phrenic nerve/diaphragmatic paralysis
We currently offer the following robotic procedures:
- Heller myotomy
- Nissen fundoplication
- Resection of mediastinal masses
- Diaphragmatic plication
After reviewing your imaging studies and discussing the risks and benefits of different approaches, your surgeon will help you determine whether robotic thoracic surgery is the best course of action to achieve the optimal outcome.
