Breathing, heartbeat, blood circulation: all functions of healthy hearts and lungs. All things we all need to keep our bodies going. Phoenixville Hospital performs cardiothoracic surgery to treat conditions that affect these essential organs. This can include operating on one of the organs or both of them at the same time, like with a heart-lung transplant.

A less involved alternative to traditional open-heart surgeries, Phoenixville cardiothoracic surgeons now perform open-heart and pulmonary operations using a robotic surgery system–one of a very small handful of teams in the region doing these procedures. With the robotic surgical platform, your surgeon's hand movements are translated into smaller, more precise movements of instruments inside your body. It's minimally invasive, performed through a single small incision, and offers patients the following potential benefits:

  • Fast recovery
  • High patient satisfaction
  • Low blood loss
  • Minimal pain
  • Minimal scarring
  • Short hospital stay
