Ascension St. Vincent’s Riverside pulmonology care team campus has now conducted over 800 robotic-assisted bronchoscopy procedures to help patients with lung cancer.
This approach has been offered at St. Vincent’s Riverside since 2020 and it was the first hospital in the area to begin using the advanced bronchoscopy technology, known as the Ion System.
According to the media release, the robotic-assisted bronchoscopy is a minimally-invasive technology that improves accuracy and precision of the biopsy of a potentially cancerous nodule.
Ascension St. Vincent pulmonary medicine doctors, thoracic surgeons, radiation oncologists, radiologists, nurse navigators and rehabilitation therapists routinely participate in the Lung Cancer Tumor Conference to confer and update each patient’s care plan.
