Minimally invasive surgery

In our practice we use a minimally invasive technique to biopsy or remove lymph nodes in the centre of the chest, or to biopsy a tissue mass in the centre of the chest.


Under general anaesthetic, a small 1.5-inch incision is made at the base of the neck, just above the breast bone. Biopsies are taken through a small metal tube with a light source inside (a mediastinoscope).


Mr Marco Scarci uses a sophisticated video system to improve magnification, take better biopsies and increase the safety of the procedure.


Post-operative recovery

Most patients go home the same day as surgery and return to work within a few days or a week. Pain pills will only be required for a few days. You may shower 48 hours after surgery, but should not soak the incision under water in a bath tub or spa for three weeks.
