Thoracic surgery is surgery performed on organs and tissues in the
chest cavity, such as the lungs or esophagus. Sometimes medication and
other non-surgical treatments are unavailable or unable to ease your
symptoms. If your doctor recommends surgery to treat your thoracic
condition, da Vinci® surgery may be an option for you. Our board certified surgeons at St.Vincent are using the da Vinci Surgical System to treat conditions of the thymus gland by removing it, called a Thymectomy.
