Several lobes form each of your lungs. If you have cancer on one of these lobes, we can remove the lobe. At UVA, we can do this operation, called a lobectomy, with video-assisted thoracic surgery, or VATS surgery.

Compared to a traditional, open lobectomy, this high-tech procedure means:
- Faster recovery
- Less pain
At UVA, you’ll get care from one of the most experienced hospitals in performing VATS in the region.
