Thoracic surgeons at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center are expanding the use of robotic surgery to the treatment of lung, esophageal, mediastinal, and thymic cancers and other disorders. They are able to perform some lobectomy, esophagectomy, and thymectomy procedures using this approach.

During the robotic procedure, the surgeon sits at a console, viewing the surgical field through the robot's "vision system." The surgeon uses controls to operate the various arms and cameras of the robot, which are placed into position in the patient by surgical assistants. The surgery robot enables the surgeon to operate with greater magnification of the surgical field and more precision in the use of surgical instruments.
