If you or a loved one requires thoracic surgery, you want experienced thoracic surgeons who have the expertise and experience to treat you in an individualized manner with the best possible outcomes.
Minimally Invasive Thoracic Surgeries
At MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, our thoracic surgeons approach every thoracic surgery with a minimally invasive approach, if possible. Minimally invasive surgeries use small incisions to visualize the surgical area. With smaller incisions, patients recover faster, with fewer complications, so they can return to the lives they love as quickly as possible.
Our thoracic surgeons perform many thoracic surgeries using a minimally invasive approach, unlike many institutions across the world. They give hope to patient who previously thought they would need their breastbone cracked open, or a huge scar across their chest.
