Before the 1990’s, early stage cancer was treated with traditional thoracic surgery. Around that time a new method was developed, using a small, endoscopic camera and several smaller incisions to operate on different areas of the body. Today, VATS is the leading technique in the field. Students all across the country are learning to perform minimally invasive procedures, so shouldn’t you be treated by some of the surgeon who are teaching them how to do it?
Both Dr. Mahtabifard and Dr. Fuller are board-certified surgeons who specialize in VATS for cancer treatment. They are both published researchers who have written in various textbooks for medical schools across the country. With over 25 years of experience, Dr. Mahtabifard and Dr. Fuller are proven leaders in their field. They are dedicated to finding the best course of treatment for you.
Today VATS is restricted to treating lung cancer that is still Stage 1. The tumor must be smaller than 6 cm in size, and the patient must pass a pulmonary function test. If you meet all of these qualifications, then VATS may be the best option for you.
