Percy Buenaventura, MD, is the Director of Thoracic Surgical Oncology at WellSpan Health's York Hospital. In the video below, he explains new minimally-invasive chest surgery techniques with high-definition video cameras and high-tech robots.

Chest surgery can be a particularly painful for patients, but these techniques significantly reduce pain as they can perform the procedure without opening the entire chest wall.  These new robots and scopes also increase the quality of care a patient receives and ultimately increase patient outcomes.
