Thoracic Procedures at Medical City Dallas

Medical City offers high-quality services utilizing minimally invasive approaches for thoracic surgical procedures that include VATS (video assisted thoracic surgery) and daVinci® robotic surgery. Standard thoracic surgery requires a large incision that cuts through large muscles resulting in many months of pain and immobility. In comparison, the advanced technology allows Dr. Magee to make smaller incisions leaving patients with significantly less pain and less scarring— resulting in a quicker recovery time.

Procedures of expertise performed include:

  • Bi-Lobectomy and Lobectomy
  • Pneumonectomy
