In this article, we will delve into the details of surgery for recurrent pneumothorax, offering comprehensive insights into the treatment options available.

Understanding Recurrent Pneumothorax

Recurrent pneumothorax is a condition characterized by the accumulation of air or gas in the pleural space, the area between the lung and chest wall. This condition can lead to the collapse of the affected lung, causing discomfort, breathing difficulties, and recurrent episodes of pneumothorax.

At Neumark Surgery, we recognize the impact recurrent pneumothorax can have on your overall well-being. We believe in providing effective and personalized surgical solutions to alleviate your symptoms, enhance your quality of life, and promote a speedy recovery.

Treatment Options

When it comes to treating recurrent pneumothorax, our skilled doctors and plastic surgeons employ advanced surgical techniques and comprehensive treatment plans tailored to each patient's unique needs. Let's explore some of the surgical options available at Neumark Surgery:

1. Thoracoscopic Surgery

Thoracoscopic surgery, also known as video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS), is a minimally invasive procedure that utilizes a small camera and specialized instruments to access and repair the affected area. This technique allows for smaller incisions, reduced scarring, and a shorter recovery time compared to traditional open surgery.

During the procedure, our experienced surgeons make a few small incisions, through which the camera and surgical instruments are inserted. This enables them to visualize and treat the recurrent pneumothorax while minimizing trauma to surrounding tissues.

2. Pleurodesis

Pleurodesis is a surgical procedure that promotes the adhesion of the lung to the chest wall, preventing further occurrences of pneumothorax. It involves the insertion of a chemical irritant into the pleural space, causing inflammation and subsequent fibrosis. This fibrosis helps seal the pleural space, preventing the accumulation of air or gas.

At Neumark Surgery, our plastic surgeons are highly skilled in performing pleurodesis, utilizing the most advanced techniques and medical-grade irritants to ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients.

3. Lung Surgery

In severe cases of recurrent pneumothorax, where conservative measures prove ineffective, lung surgery may be necessary. Our team of board-certified surgeons possesses exceptional expertise in lung surgery, including wedge resection, which involves removing a small portion of the lung affected by recurrent pneumothorax.

By addressing the underlying cause of the recurrent pneumothorax and removing damaged lung tissue, we aim to provide long-term relief and improve respiratory function.
