Endoscopic (VATS) surgery of Mediastinal masses

Following medical investigations, a proportion of patients can be found to have abnormal masses within the chest.  These can range from being innocent collections of fluid to large tumours from glands in the chest.  Mr Zacharias and his team have extensive experience in resecting these tumours with an endoscopic (key hole) approach leading to the majority of patients having smaller scars, expereincing less pain with shorter hospital stays.

If there is a concerning shadow picked up on a CT scan and you would like to discuss this, we would be happy to give you an opinion regarding the safety and likelihood of removing this by an endoscopic (VATS) approach.

Mr Joseph Zacharias is a Consultant Cardio-Thoracic Surgeon who over the past 18 years has introduced many patient centred procedures and reviewed, presented and published his excellent results. He is passionate about teaching and training and continues to help disseminate his learning and skills to doctors at all levels of training. Mr Zacharias has one of the largest experiences in endoscopic heart surgery in the UK and continues to maintain a busy practice in both complex heart and lung surgery.
