A:  Your health is in good hands: our team has nearly two decades of experience. We have performed over 7,000 VATS procedures since 1991 – from simple lung resections, to more complicated procedures like removing a portion of the lung (lobectomy, segmentectomy) or the entire lung (pneumonectomy). We have also treated pleural disease and mediastinal abnormalities. In fact, because VATS provides endoscopic access to the chest cavity, our experience allows us to perform virtually any procedure in the thoracic cavity involving the lung, mediastinum, and pleura, without traumatizing the chest wall.
