Pulmonary lobectomy

A pulmonary lobectomy is an operation to remove a lobe of the lung. A lobectomy is performed to treat lung conditions such as lung cancer, congenital defects, cysts, tuberculosis and emphysema.

While a traditional lobectomy involves making a large incision and spreading the ribs to remove the lung lobe affected by the tumor, surgeons using the innovative da Vinci S Robotic Surgery System are able to make several small incisions between the ribs to remove the lobe. Patients who undergo robotically assisted lobectomy typically experience less pain and fewer complications.
