General Thoracic Surgery

Thoracic surgery refers to any type of surgery performed on organs and tissues in your chest cavity, such as your lungs. When medication or other treatments are not effective, your doctor may recommend surgery. Thoracic surgery can be performed using open surgery or minimally invasive surgery.

Video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) is a recently developed type of surgery that enables doctors to view the inside of the chest cavity after making only very small incisions. It allows surgeons to remove masses close to the outside edges of the lung and to test them for cancer using a much smaller surgery than doctors needed to use in the past. It is also useful for diagnosing certain pneumonia infections, diagnosing infections or tumors of the chest wall, and treating repeatedly collapsing lungs. Doctors are continuing to develop other uses for VATS.
