Robotic-Assisted Surgery for the Lung

If your doctor recommends surgery for a condition affecting your lungs, you may be a candidate for robotic-assisted surgery. This form of surgery is performed through a few small incisions between your ribs, rather than making a long incision through the chest wall. Robotic-assisted surgery of the chest cavity offers patients potential benefits over traditional approaches, including:

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

TransCarotid Artery Revascularization (TCAR) Procedure

Mercy Clinic Cardiac, Thoracic and Vascular Surgery Joplin now offers a new TransCarotid Artery Revascularization (TCAR) procedure to treat patients with carotid artery disease.

Proven to decrease the risk of stroke, TCAR uses a less invasive approach than traditional carotid endarterectomy and is safer than transfemoral stenting. TCAR is an FDA-approved procedure that's been studied extensively by members of the medical community. Published data from clinical trials show the procedure has better patient outcomes, including a low risk of stroke for high-risk patients. Due to its less invasive surgical approach, TCAR also has shorter recovery times, with most patients returning home the day after the procedure.
