Thoracic disorders are diseases of the heart, lungs, mediastinum, esophagus, chest wall, diaphragm and great vessels. In essence, these problems affect normal respiratory functioning of the lungs and airway, making it difficult for you to breathe. Conditions impacting the thoracic area range from routine conditions to rare and complex diseases. These disorders may be caused by an underlying illness, an injury or infection, or the side-effect of cancer treatment.
But you don’t have to worry. We at Medical Arts Surgical Group can assist you with a treatment plan that is tailored to your needs and diagnosis. Call us to learn more about our services now!
What are the Thoracic Conditions?
Thoracic conditions may include chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), tracheomalacia and emphysema, empyema and pleural effusion, pneumothorax/collapsed lung and also specialize in tracheal and bronchial disorders, benign or cancerous. Treatment depends on the severity of the condition and can include medications, respiratory therapy, and surgery.
Medical management starts with the least invasive options available like medication and respiratory therapy. Here at MASG, we offer surgical options that are not widely available in the community or even at many major academic medical centers. Our board-certified thoracic surgeons have sub-specialty training and years of experience in the diagnosis and surgical management of lung and airway conditions.
Our surgeons have particular expertise in minimally invasive techniques such as endoscopic therapies and robotic assisted thoracic surgery.
Robotic thoracic surgery is a type of minimally invasive surgery used in thoracic procedures for some lung cancer cases. Also called robotic-assisted thoracic surgery, it can be used to remove diseased lung tissue and possibly surrounding lymph nodes. The surgeons at MASG offer minimally invasive surgical options which minimizes pain and discomfort and improves recovery and patient outcomes.
MASG uses robotic surgery for many chest procedures
Most people prefer robotic thoracic surgery over traditional surgery. Robotic surgery results in less pain post-procedure, fewer complications like infected wounds, shorter hospital stays, reduced recovery times, and a faster return to work and regular activities.
