Thoracic Surgery

Delray Medical Center surgeons are using the da Vinci® robotic surgical system for thoracic procedures. This minimally invasive approach has started to change the way surgeons operate inside the chest--especially in the lungs and esophagus. Using robotic surgery, thymectomies and other potentially traumatic procedures may be performed through 1-2 cm incisions, without spreading or cutting the breastbone or ribs, thereby minimizing blood loss, pain and scarring.  

Thoracic robotics procedures may include Thymectomy (surgery to remove the thymus gland), Lobectomy (surgery to remove the lobe of a lung) and Esophagectomy (surgery to remove a portion of the esophagus).

Robotic surgery offers a minimally invasive approach to hysterectomy and other procedures such as fibroid removal, endometriosis surgery, endometrial/cervical cancer surgery, and vaginal/uterine prolapse.
This minimally invasive approach has started to change the way surgeons operate inside the chest--especially in the lungs and esophagus.
Delray Medical Center surgical teams have undergone extensive training in order to be able to incorporate the Robotic Surgery system into their ORs.
Robotic Surgery is an advanced surgical technique that offers a wide variety of potential benefits for patients. Oftentimes our patients are unfamiliar with the procedure and have a multitude of questions.
