Minimally Invasive Lung Surgery

Dr. Shamsuddin Khwaja performs a variety of minimally invasive procedures for conditions of the lungs, pleura and mediastinum. Compared to surgery performed through a long, open-chest incision, minimally invasive lung surgery provides several benefits for patients, including the following:

  • Faster recovery and return to normal activities
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less pain
  • Little scarring
  • Minimal blood loss
  • No cutting of the ribs or breastbone (sternum)
