Thoracic (Chest) Conditions

Thoracic conditions refer to certain illnesses that affect the organs inside your chest, such as your lungs, heart or esophagus.

When medicine or other treatments do not ease your symptoms or condition, it may suggest of surgery. Surgery can include: open surgery through one large incision (cut) or minimally invasive surgery through a few small incisions.

Minimally invasive surgery can be done through video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) or da Vinci robotic-assisted surgery.
