Another procedure the thoracic team at Good Samaritan Medical Center performs is called a thoracotomy. This procedure allows our surgeons to treat lung disease or lung damage. Our surgeons perform many of these procedures thoracoscopically, in a minimally invasive way using a tube attached to a camera. If a surgeon is not able to use this minimally invasive process, an open incision will be made through the chest wall to treat a patient’s lung condition. A thoracotomy is usually performed to treat a lung abscess, lung cancer or other lung conditions that sometimes form in emphysema.
Thoracic surgeons at Good Samaritan Medical Center also perform pacemaker insertions.
