Robot-assisted Thoracic Surgery

Robotic lung and chest surgery uses very small, easy to maneuver instruments controlled by the surgeon sitting at a nearby console. The surgeon has a greatly magnified, high-definition view and three times more precise motion. This advanced technology takes surgery far beyond the limits of the human eye and hand. Robotic chest and lung surgeries may result in better outcomes and increased survival among patients with stage 1 lung cancer. Robotic surgery is also performed on the thymus gland and the esophagus.
