Thoracic and Esophageal Cancer
Robotic VAT Surgery at
Hackensack Meridian Health
Our thoracic surgeons are leaders in robotic video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) and are specially-trained to perform the most complex procedures, including robotic esophagectomy (removal of all or part of the esophagus). Minimally invasive, robotic-assisted techniques offer fewer incisions, faster recovery and better outcomes. In fact, for the last two years, our average overnight hospitalization after lobectomy (lung lobe removal) for lung cancer was half the national average, or two days instead of four.
