Lung Surgery

Lung surgery is serious business, and our cardiothoracic surgeons specialize in diagnosing and surgically treating diseases of and around the lungs (the heart, lung, chest, esophagus, diaphragm and blood vessels - cardiac and thoracic diseases). We combine the human aspect of caring about how people feel in our care with innovations such as robotic-assisted surgery that help them return home sooner.

Baptist Hospital was the first hospital in Northwest Florida to offer the da Vinci® S HD Surgical System. The innovative technology provides an option to perform a minimally invasive procedure to treat diseases such as lung cancer.

Minimally invasive surgery benefits are all patient-centered:

  • Less pain
  • Fewer complications
  • Decreased blood loss
  • Faster recovery
  • Quicker return to daily activities

The bottom line is that we want you to be comfortable, receive expert care and return to the life you love.
