Every year thousands of people come to us to have complex cardiac and lung operations. Traditionally these operations involve major trauma to the body with patients spending many days in intensive care and then even longer in step down wards. The road to recovery is long and hard particularly if you are an older patient.


In purchasing a robot and developing the cardiac and thoracic robotic surgical programmes LHCH would be able to offer care that utilises leading edge technology, offer treatments that further reduce length of stay, post-operative pain and post-operative complications. These all aid patients in returning back to a normal life sooner than conventional treatments.
