Thoracic Surgery

Lung Lobectomy
Lung lobes may need to be removed if diseased. Most commonly we remove lung lobes in treating cancer. Stapling devices are used for this to minimize bleeding as well as decrease surgery time and complications.

PDA and PRAA Repair
These conditions result from a congenital malformation of blood vessels around the heart. Surgery involves ligating the patent ductus (in the PDA) or cutting the persistent remnant of the ductus (in the PRAA).

Pericardectomy
In this procedure a portion of the pericardial sac around the heart is excised. It is utilized most commonly to relieve pressure from blood or fluid around the heart.
