Thoracic Surgery: Why Choose Us?
The skilled, board-certified surgeons at Nuvance Health offer:
Minimally invasive surgery
Surgeons perform advanced lung and airway procedures through small incisions. They offer da Vinci® robotic-assisted surgery and VATS (video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery). These procedures may provide greater precision, reduced healing time and a faster recovery.
Nuvance Health measure the success of our program by our results. To ensure patients receive quality outcomes, we voluntarily report results to the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS). The STS assesses surgical outcomes and benchmarks them against other top programs. Danbury Hospital has achieved a distinguished three-star rating from the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) for its lung cancer resection outcomes, the highest quality rating possible.
