Dr. Samer Kanaan is dedicated to the prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the chest, using minimally invasive procedures, including video-assisted thoracic surgery and robotic-assisted technologies.
Robotic-assisted lung surgery is a minimally invasive procedure to treat lung cancer. Your doctor performs surgery through small incisions with the help of robotic arms that improve accuracy and dexterity.
A few small keyhole incisions are made and a video camera and instruments are passed through these to visualize and access the site of surgery. The instruments are held by precisely-controlled robotic arms which your doctor operates at a console in the operating room. The video camera provides a 3D view and the robotic arms can be
The benefits of Robotic Assisted lung Surgery include
- Less Tissue Trauma
- Better Visualization
- Fewer Complications
