Thoracic Surgery

Thoracic Surgery is used for the treatment of thoracic cancers and diseases of the esophagus and mediastinum (chest cavity).

Conditions We Treat

  • Lung cancer
  • Thoracic cancers and mesothelioma
  • Thymoma, thymic cancer and mediastinal diseases
  • Myasthenia gravis
  • Esophageal cancer
  • Benign conditions of the esophagus
    • Acid reflux and hiatal hernia
    • Achalasia
  • Hyperhidrosis (sweaty palms and face)

Benefits of Minimally Invasive and Robotic Thoracic Surgery

Complex procedures like thoracic surgery require a detailed view of the surgery site and the ability to maneuver instruments within the chest cavity. Robotic surgery allows greater precision and control.

And because it’s minimally invasive, patients benefit from:

  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Smaller incisions (small cuts) and less pain
  • Lower risk of infection
  • Less blood loss and fewer transfusions
  • Faster recovery and return to normal activities
