Lung surgery is serious business, and our cardiothoracic surgeons specialize in diagnosing and surgically treating diseases of and around the lungs (the heart, lung, chest, esophagus, diaphragm and blood vessels - cardiac and thoracic diseases). We combine the human aspect of caring about how people feel in our care with innovations such as robotic-assisted surgery that help them return home sooner.
Baptist Hospital was the first hospital in Northwest Florida to offer the da Vinci® S HD Surgical System. The innovative technology provides an option to perform a minimally invasive procedure to treat diseases such as lung cancer.
Minimally invasive surgery benefits are all patient-centered:
- Less pain
- Fewer complications
- Decreased blood loss
- Faster recovery
- Quicker return to daily activities
The bottom line is that we want you to be comfortable, receive expert care and return to the life you love.
