Minimally invasive robotic surgery

Our surgeons use minimally invasive robot-assisted surgery when possible. This advanced robotic technology helps surgeons operate with greater accuracy and control during the procedure, allowing them to perform complex operations. With minimally invasive robotic surgery, the procedure is able to be performed through a small incision using thin instruments held by robotic arms. These robotic arms are controlled from a console stationed next to the patient, that provide a magnified view of the site for the surgeon.

Robotic surgery offers patients:

  • Fewer complications
  • Less harm to surrounding tissue
  • Less postoperative pain
  • Quicker recuperation
  • Reduced blood loss
  • Reduced scarring
  • Shorter hospital stays

We offer the following procedures using robot-assisted surgery:

  • Drainage of pleural effusion
  • Lobectomy
  • Lung biopsy, including robot-assisted bronchoscopy
  • Mediastinal, pericardial and thymic procedures
  • Wedge resection
