What is a Lobectomy | Surgsci

A lobectomy is a surgical procedure that involves removing one of the lobes of the lungs. It is most often done during a surgery called a thoracotomy. A lobectomy may be done when a problem is found in just part of a lung. The affected lobe is removed, and the remaining healthy lung tissue can work as normal.

The diagnosis for lobectomy includes lung cancer diagnosis, infection, COPD or benign tumors. Lung cancer is the most common reason for lobectomy. The treatment for lobectomy is surgery. During the operation, the doctor removes some of the part of your brain where most seizures start. Surgery isn’t the first choice for treating epilepsy symptoms.

The surgery can be done in two ways: open surgery and video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS). In open surgery, an incision is made between your ribs to access your lungs. In VATS, several small incisions are made on your chest. A tiny camera and surgical instruments are inserted through these incisions to perform the surgery.

Before undergoing a lobectomy, you will need to have some tests done to make sure you are healthy enough for surgery. These tests may include blood tests, chest x-rays, CT scans or other imaging tests. You may also need to stop taking certain medications before your surgery.

After your surgery, you will need to stay in the hospital for several days. You will be given pain medication to help manage any discomfort you may have after your surgery. You will also be given instructions on how to care for yourself at home after your surgery.
