Chest Surgery is a vast field. To provide cutting-edge treatment we have different divisions catering to different diseases.

Utilize cutting-edge technology

  • The DaVinci Si 3D Robot

    The Da Vinci robotic technology is the most advanced platform for minimally invasive surgery available today.  It enables surgeons to perform delicate and complex surgeries through a few tiny incisions, instead of giving the patient a big cut. The system has an ergonomically designed console where the surgeon sits while operating. The hand movements of the surgeon are converted into corresponding micro-movements of instruments inside the patient’s body.

  • VATS (Key Hole Surgery)

    Key hole surgery is a revolutionary concept wherein the surgeon carries out the same operation as in open surgery but without the big cuts associated with open surgery. In key hole surgery, instead of big cuts, surgeons make small cuts, put special trocars (hollow tubes) inside the body cavity, put a telescope inside (with a specialized camera mounted on it) which gives the inside image on a monitor.

Avail advanced treatment and procedures

  • Robotic Chest Surgery

    Cutting edge Robotic Surgery for various chest, abdominal, vascular & endocrine (Thyroid) diseases is available at the Institute of Chest Surgery at Medanta

  • VATS- Video Assisted Thoracic Surgery

    Thoracic surgery when performed using a small video camera in a patient's chest by making small incisions is termed Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS or commonly known as keyhole surgery). The small incisions made reduces the rate of infection entering into the patient’s body. Also, the rate of recovery is must faster as compared to the normal open surgery

  • Open Chest Surgery

    Traditionally, thoracic surgery has been performed through a thoracotomy, which is a surgical incision made between the ribs. The incision is approximately 10-15 cm and often results in the need to cut or spread the ribs to get adequate visualization. Typical procedures performed via this approach include removal of the lung or a portion of the lung, esophagus, or chest wall tumors, and repairs of the esophagus, lung, or major blood vessels.

  • Robotic Thymectomy

    The surgical treatment of thymomas is termed as Thymectomy.  The procedure has achieved massive success in the improvement of Myasthenia Gravia post thymectomy.  Robotic Thymectomy has become an alternative approach to open surgery/video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery. This procedure uses Da Vinci Technology to perform surgeries.

  • Lobectomy

    lobectomy is a surgery to remove one of the lobes of the lungs. Lungs are made up of five sections called lobes. Three in the right lung and two in the left lung. A lobectomy may be done when a problem is found in just part of a lung. The affected lobe is removed, and the remaining healthy lung tissue can work as normal.

    A lobectomy is most often done during a surgery called a thoracotomy. During this type of surgery, the cut (incision) is made at the level of the affected lobe. The cut is most often made on the front of the chest. The surgeon gets access to the chest cavity through the exposed ribs to remove the lobe. Institute of Chest Surgery @ Medanta specialises in performing Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) Lobectomy for Lung Cancer. This is a less-invasive procedure. In VATS 3 or 4 small cuts are used instead of 1 large cut. A Thoracoscope is put into the chest cavity and it shows the internal organs on the screen. The small tools are used through the other cuts to do the surgery.

  • Pneumonectomy

    Pneumonectomy is the technical term used for the surgical removal of the whole lung. Pneumonectomy is done in cases of destroyed lungs due to extensive tuberculosis / bacterial / fungal infections. This surgery is also performed to treat lung cancer when less radical surgery cannot achieve satisfactory results. In case the tumor is located near the center of the lung that involves the major pulmonary artery or veins, this surgery is more appropriate.

  • Esophagectomy

    Esophagectomy is a surgical procedure to remove food pipe which connects oral cavity with stomach. This surgery also includes a reconstructive method, where a part of stomach / large intestine or rarely small intestine is used for reconstruction. Esophagectomy is a common treatment for advanced esophageal cancer and is used occasionally for benign diseases such as Barrett's esophagus, corrosive strictures and end-stage motility disorders such as achalasia cardia.

  • Bullectomy/ Blebectomy

    Bullectomy is a surgical procedure in which dilated air-spaces (bullae) are resected. This condition arises due to destruction of lung parenchyma. Common causes of bullae include chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) due to smoking and sometimes congenital in origin. Giant bullae filling half the thoracic volume and compressing normal adjacent lung parenchyma are also indications for bullectomy.

    In the similar way, the term “Bleb” is used when the size of the dilated air space is < 3 cm and removal of such small blebs is called “Blebectomy”.

  • Thyroidectomy

    Thyroidectomy is the surgical resection of all or part of thyroid gland in the neck, which produces a hormone called thyroid hormone. Thyroidectomy is indicated in cases of thyroid cancers, goitre (noncancerous enlargement of the thyroid) and occasionally in overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism). The extent of resection depends upon the case of surgery. In some situations, this gland in the neck enlarges and can extend into the chest behind the breast bone (Retro-sternal thyroid). This condition can cause significant windpipe (trachea) compression causing difficulty in breathing.
