Skilled Care for the Lungs and Chest

Conditions that affect the thoracic (chest) region of the body can be extremely complex. They may encompass multiple organs, damage the lungs or bring risks to your aorta, the heart’s largest artery.

At Baton Rouge General, we offer expertise in both thoracic surgery and in using minimally invasive treatments. We offer video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) and robotic surgery, which allows doctors to use robot-assisted tools to perform very precise treatment.

Unparalleled Thoracic Care, Amazing Results
