Thoracic surgeons specialize in treating conditions of the chest, lungs, and esophagus. They also treat the symptoms of hyperhidrosis. If you are seeking thoracic surgery, then you need the best care possible. West Coast Associates for Minimally Invasive Thoracic Surgery is just that. Led by Dr. Mahtabifard and Dr. Fuller, our team is dedicated to providing our patients with leading technology and exceptional care.

Today the standard treatment in thoracic surgery is video assisted thoracic surgery or VATS. VATS utilizes a small endoscopic camera on the edge of a maneuverable tube. This allows the surgeon to make small incisions and access the chest cavity and lungs by cutting through the chest wall and spreading the ribs. This greatly eases the recovery process, reduces pain, and lowers the risk of surgical complications, such as rib fractures.

Dr. Mahtabifard and Dr. Fuller are both board-certified surgeons specializing in minimally invasive thoracic surgery. With over 25 years of experience, published research, and training from some of the best hospitals and medical schools in the world, they are proud to offer the best possible treatment.

Even with medical advancements and the best possible hands, surgery can be a scary thing. The easiest way to overcome this fear is to educate yourself on the various treatment options available to you. Making a decision can be difficult, but making a decision with a skilled doctor can make it a little easier.
