Cardiothoracic Surgeries

If you have a lung disease, a type of surgery called a lobectomy is one treatment option your doctor may suggest. Your lungs are made up of five sections called lobes. You have three in your right lung and two in your left. A lobectomy removes one of these lobes. After the surgery, your healthy tissue makes up for the missing section, so your lungs should work as well or better than they did before.
