Robotic Lung & Mediastinal Surgery

New Cardiovascular Technology for Faster Healing

Using a state-of-the-art method known as the da Vinci Surgical System, our Los Angeles cardiovascular surgery team at the office of Azmi Atiya MD provides an option to perform minimally invasive biopsies, lobectomies, and thymectomies. This is a terrific alternative to conventional open surgery. With fewer and smaller incisions made, and a greater amount of vision, precision, and control for the surgeon, patients who undergo this procedure enjoy extensive benefits and are often able to return to their normal daily activities and life much quicker.

Some of the benefits of the da Vinci System include:

  • Reduced pain and discomfort
  • Minimal scarring
  • Less blood loss
  • Faster recovery times and shorter hospital stays
  • Lower risk of infections and other serious complications

How Does the da Vinci System Work?

Traditional surgery requires the surgeon to use hand-held instruments that cannot bend or rotate, as well as a 2D video monitor that shows an image of the anatomy. In contrast to this, the da Vinci Surgical System allows the surgeon to use miniaturized wrist instruments and a high-definition 3D camera while seated at a comfortable console. Using robotic technology, the hand movements of the surgeon are precisely translated into micro-movements of the instruments.
