Institute of minimally invasive and robotic thoracic surgery
The Institute of Minimally Invasive and Robotic Thoracic Surgery performs a wide range of thoracic surgical procedures on anatomical structures in the chest like the lungs, esophagus, ribs, diaphragm, pleura, pericardium, nerves, etc using keyhole surgical techniques.
The center has experience in handling lung cancer, esophageal tumors, nerve tumors, chest wall deformities, infective complications due to tuberculosis, airway tumors, chest trauma, and end-stage lung disease needing a lung transplant. Their expertise lies in performing all thoracic surgical procedures using keyhole techniques on Video-assisted Thoracoscopic (VATS) and Robotic (RTS) platforms.
As leaders in the surgical treatment of thoracic diseases, our team of expert thoracic surgeons offers innovative specialized thoracic surgical programs for:
- Management of chest wall deformities: pectus excavatum and carinatum
- Infections of the chest wall: rib and sternal osteomyelitis
- Palmoplantar hyperhidrosis: increased sweating of hands
- Lung cancer detection
- Multidisciplinary lung cancer management program
The institute offers cutting-edge screening techniques like Endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS), navigational bronchoscopy, cryobiopsy, and interventional pulmonology. It boasts of the latest in surgical technology in minimally invasive thoracic surgery like Endostaplers, harmonic scalpel, Karl Storz VATS cart, and the Da Vinci Si Robot.
All thoracic surgical patients are managed by a multidisciplinary team of thoracic surgeons, pulmonologists, cardiologists, thoracic intensivists, respiratory therapists, and thoracic anesthesiologists. Support is provided from ancillary specialties like neurology, nephrology, pediatrics, general medicine, and physical medicine and rehabilitation to ensure the best possible care.
Our center is a national tertiary care referral center for complex lung diseases. The lung cancer center at Yashoda is focussed on early detection of lung cancer and surgical management of early lung cancer with subsequent adjuvant therapies like chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and immunotherapy.
We perform more than 300 thoracic operations annually spanning the entire spectrum of thoracic diseases, delivering excellence in patient care.
