Video Assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery Lobectomy

Why Choose Florida Hospital?

Several types of lung problems may require surgery to remove tissue and/or to make repairs. Because the lungs represent the most vital organs in the respiratory system, any diseases and conditions such as a cancerous and noncancerous tumor, lung cancer, emphysema and other related lung conditions can cause major complications. A Video Assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery Lobectomy (VATS) is a minimally invasive procedure where a small tube with a tiny camera is inserted into the chest cavity to perform a lobectomy. Prior to the insertion of the VATS, a surgeon will make several small cuts in the chest to insert the device. This advanced VATS procedure can be viewed on a monitor to guide the surgeon while a lobectomy is performed to remove a portion of the diseased lung. Surgeons at Florida Hospital are highly specialized in using a Video Assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery Lobectomy (VATS) to treat lung cancer.
