General thoracic surgery treats conditions such as lung diseases, tumors, cancers, esophageal problems and gastroesophageal reflux. Our surgeons use minimally invasive techniques such as robotic surgery and video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS). By inserting advanced video technology through small incisions, a surgeon can perform surgery without the need for larger incisions. The advantages of these techniques include quicker recovery, reduced risk for infection and less scarring.
