    VATS is a technique of minimally invasive thoracic surgery that involves insertion of a telescope with a camera attached to it through a small incision, or port. The thoracoscope allows the surgeon to examine inside the chest cavity and to remove tissues using specially designed instruments inserted through one or two additional ports. For more extensive operations such as lung resection for cancer, an additional incision measuring about 3 centimeters is made for the removal of the lung tissue. We specialize in doing 90% of our VATS procedures through Uniportal VATS (Single incision of 1.5 cms)
