VATS Lung Volume reduction in Dubai at DRHC

VATS (Video-Assisted Thoracic Surgery) lung volume reduction is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to treat severe emphysema, a type of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). This procedure involves removing small, damaged portions of the lung to improve lung function and reduce symptoms such as shortness of breath.

During a VATS lung volume reduction, the surgeon makes several small incisions in the chest and inserts a small camera and specialized instruments through the incisions. The camera allows the surgeon to visualize the lung and surrounding structures on a monitor, while the instruments are used to remove the damaged portions of the lung.

VATS lung volume reduction is associated with less pain, shorter hospital stays, and faster recovery times compared to traditional open surgery. It is 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, VATS lung volume reduction is typically performed by highly skilled and experienced thoracic surgeons who specialize in the treatment of COPD. The surgeons at the Dubai Thoracic Surgery Clinic, located at the Dr. Rami Hamed Center, have extensive experience in performing VATS lung volume reduction and work closely with a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals to provide comprehensive care for patients undergoing this procedure.
