Chest Surgery

Due to the invasiveness, post-operative pain, and recovery times associated with traditional exploration of the thoracic cavity (thoracotomy), minimally invasive thoracic surgery has grown quickly in popularity. Thoracoscopy allows the same procedures to be performed with improved visualization, reduced tissue dissection and disruption, and faster/easier recoveries for our patients. Thoracoscopic surgery is a popular area of active research and as development of veterinary instrumentation progresses so will our ability to perform a greater proportion of thoracic procedures minimally invasively.
