Lung Volume Reduction Surgery

A Partnership in Helping You Breathe Easier

Emphysema is a debilitating disease. Geisinger thoracic surgeons use minimally invasive lung volume reduction surgery to restore breath – and quality of life – to many emphysema patients.

Our close relationship with Geisinger's outstanding pulmonary medicine team means we'll work together to give you the right care through rehabilitation and as you get back to daily life.

Although not a cure, lung volume reduction may be the right choice to help you breathe more deeply. Ask your primary care physician about lung volume reduction surgery, or contact a Geisinger thoracic surgeon.
