Robotic Resection of Mediastinal and Other Extended Use


“The technology makes your life easier, and that is why you change.” These words of encouragement come from Medanta’s Dr. Ali Zamir Khan, Thoracic Surgeon, Head of Department:Minimally Invasive VATS and Robotic Thoracic Surgery. His presentation not only encourages non-robotic surgeons, it highlights where the “robot works beautifully,” in VATS. Khan describes some of the differences between laparoscopic and robotic procedures, and why robotic is easier to master than laparoscopic for surgeons accustomed to open surgery. He has several examples with PPT’s, photos, X-rays, CT scans and robotic camera videos of various procedures. 14:06
