Dr. Michael Mulligan is the Director of Minimally Invasive Thoracic Surgery and regularly performs and teaches video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS). In this video, he describes what differentiates SCCA from other institutions. The UW has the only lung transplant program in the area and does more complex airway surgeries than anywhere in the United States. We have tremendous lung cancer oncology at an institution with three Nobel Prize laureates. We now have a variety of minimally invasive surgical techniques, including video assisted and robotic thoracic surgery that are changing the way we do lung cancer surgery.
