The Thoracic Surgeons at NTI are using cutting edge technology to provide minimally invasive thoracic surgery to patients referred to our practice. Each patient will be evaluated for the most appropriate surgical approach that is individualized to their condition.
One approach for providing minimally invasive thoracic surgery is through the use of robotics. Placing articulating instruments through small 1 cm. incisions allows the thoracic surgeon to gain access into the thoracic and abdominal cavities. Once the instruments are inside, the surgeon has full control of the robot.
St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center is proud to be an accredited SRC Center of Excellence in robotic surgery. Earning SRC’s robotic accreditation signifies our ability to deliver the safest and highest-quality care to our patient. Our commitment to this process has focused our team on exceeding clinical benchmarks and guidelines. Learn More.
Robotic surgery involves risk, some of which may be similar to those of conventional open surgery, such as a small risk of infection and other complications.
Robotic surgery isn't an option for everyone. Talk with your doctor about the benefits and risks of robotic surgery and how it compares with other techniques, such as other types of minimally invasive surgery and conventional open surgery.
Robotic surgery may not be available at all Dignity Health hospitals and medical centers in your area.
