Advanced Robotic Surgery with Minimally Invasive Benefits

Robotic surgery is a minimally invasive option for lung cancer patients requiring a lobectomy. Using the da Vinci Surgical System, our GMC surgeons make only a few small incisions—similar to thoracoscopy procedures. The da Vinci System features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and tiny, wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist and fingers can.

These unique features enable surgeons to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control. As a result of this advanced technology at Gwinnett Medical Center, a da Vinci lobectomy procedure offers precise removal of cancerous tissue, as well as the following potential benefits compared to open surgery:

  • Smaller incisions for minimal scarring
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less pain and blood loss
  • Fewer days with chest tube (used to drain excess lung fluid)
