Robotic-Assisted Lung Surgery in Southwest Missouri

When surgery is needed for conditions affecting your lungs, robotic-assisted surgery may be an option. If your Mercy doctor recommends surgery, and it's determined that you're a candidate, the trained doctors at Mercy Hospital Springfield will perform surgery with the assistance of robotic technology. This means that instead of a large incision through your chest wall, a few small incisions will be made between your ribs.

Robotic-assisted surgery of the chest cavity offers patients potential benefits over traditional surgical approaches, including:

  • Fewer complications
  • Less pain
  • Less scar tissue
  • Reduced blood loss and need for transfusions
  • Reduced muscle and tissue damage
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Quicker recovery and return to normal activities
