If your doctor has diagnosed you with lung cancer and recommends surgery to remove a portion or a lobe of your lung, you may be a candidate for minimally invasive da Vinci® Surgery. The procedure to remove a lobe of your lung is known as a lobectomy.
Surgeons operate through a few small incisions between the ribs – similar to other minimally invasive approaches. The da Vinci® System features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and special wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. This method enables the surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.
