Is thoracic surgery minimally invasive?

Yes, thoracic surgery can be performed using minimally invasive techniques. Minimally invasive thoracic surgery involves using small incisions and special tools, such as a thoracoscope, to access and operate on the thoracic region. This approach can lead to faster recovery times, reduced pain, and smaller scars compared to traditional open surgery. However, not all thoracic surgeries can be performed minimally invasively, as the technique depends on the specific procedure and individual patient factors.
