VATS/Open Lobectomy
at DRHC Dubai

VATS (Video-Assisted Thoracic Surgery) Lobectomy and open lobectomy are two surgical approaches used to remove a lobe of the lung, typically to treat lung cancer or other conditions affecting the lung. Both procedures involve making an incision in the chest to access the lung, but they differ in the way the surgery is performed.

VATS Lobectomy:

  • VATS lobectomy 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 lung and surrounding structures on a monitor and performs the surgery using the instruments inserted through the incisions.
  • VATS lobectomy is associated with less pain, shorter hospital stays, and faster recovery times compared to open lobectomy.

Open Lobectomy:

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

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