VATS/Open Mediastinal Tumors Resection in Dubai at DRHC

VATS (Video-Assisted Thoracic Surgery) and open mediastinal tumor resection are surgical procedures used to remove tumors located in the mediastinum, the central compartment of the chest that contains the heart, esophagus, trachea, thymus, and other structures. These procedures are typically performed to treat mediastinal tumors, which can be benign or malignant and can arise from various tissues in the mediastinum.

VATS Mediastinal Tumor Resection:

  • VATS mediastinal tumor resection is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a small camera and specialized instruments to perform the surgery through several small incisions in the chest.
  • The surgeon uses the camera to visualize the tumor and surrounding structures on a monitor and performs the surgery using the instruments inserted through the incisions.
  • VATS mediastinal tumor resection is associated with less pain, shorter hospital stays, and faster recovery times compared to open surgery.

Open Mediastinal Tumor Resection:

  • Open mediastinal tumor resection is a traditional surgical approach that involves making a larger incision in the chest to access the tumor.
  • The surgeon uses direct visualization and standard surgical instruments to perform the surgery.
  • Open mediastinal tumor resection may be necessary in some cases where VATS resection is not feasible or appropriate.

Both VATS and open mediastinal tumor resection are major surgical procedures that require careful planning and coordination. They are usually performed under general anesthesia and may require a hospital stay of several days to weeks, depending on the extent of the surgery and the patient's condition.

In Dubai, both VATS and open mediastinal tumor resection are typically performed by highly skilled and experienced thoracic surgeons who specialize in the treatment of mediastinal tumors. The surgeons at the Dubai Thoracic Surgery Clinic, located at the Dr. Rami Hamed Center, have extensive experience performing both types of resections and work closely with a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals to provide comprehensive care for patients undergoing these procedures.
