General thoracic surgery treats conditions such as lung diseases, tumors, cancers, as well as transplants, 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 (cuts in your body), a surgeon can see in the inside of your chest without need larger incisions. This advantages of these techniques include quicker recovery, reduced risk for infection and less scarring.
