Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS)
VATS has revolutionised Lung and Mediastinal surgery . Absence of large incision and hence reduced pain, short hospital stay make it an attractive alternative to Conventional Thoracotomy.

During this surgery, one or more small incisions are made in the chest. A tiny fiber-optic camera (called a thorascope) is inserted through one incision, and surgical instruments are inserted through this or other small incisions. The thorascope transmits images of the inside of the chest on a video monitor, guiding the surgeon in maneuvering the instruments to complete the procedure.
