Scottsdale CVT Surgeons

Major surgery. Minor incisions.

Imagine a camera the diameter of a pencil becoming the surgeon’s eye. Instruments no bigger than a paper clip serving as the surgeon’s hands. Complex surgery performed with dramatically smaller incisions.

You might think this is tomorrow’s technology, but it’s available today at Scottsdale CVT Surgeons. It’s called endoscopic — also known as minimally invasive – surgery. This method, performed with a fiber-optic videoscope and other small instruments, offers you many benefits over traditional surgery. Everything from a shorter hospital stay and reduced pain to a quicker recovery, fewer complications and less scarring. When appropriate, we perform endoscopic surgery for the following conditions:

  • Chest mass
  • Lung disease
  • Recurrent pneumothorax

We can perform advanced endoscopic for the following procedures:

Mediastinoscopy

A surgical procedure used to detect or stage lymphoma or lung cancer. Using a mediastinoscope (a narrow, hollow tube with an attached light), we can collect tissue for laboratory analysis.

 

Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS)

Has made life infinitely easier for thousands of patients with a collapsed lung, fluid on the lung or lesions on the lung. VATS involves small incisions instead of a very large one. VATS allows us to view the entire chest cavity through a lens and TV monitor, allowing more comprehensive diagnostic capabilities with less inconvenience to patients.
