Dr. Bryan Burt prefers to perform video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery because it has a shorter recovery period.
Some of Dr. Burt’s special areas of interest include the asbestos-related cancers of mesothelioma and lung cancer. He prefers minimally invasive surgical techniques such as video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) and robotic surgery over open chest surgery. VATS requires only several small incisions, making it a lower-risk and less painful alternative to open chest surgery. Dr. Burt also prefers to perform VATS because it has a shorter recovery period.
