Innovative operation to treat lung cancer will be broadcast live on Thursday, Dec. 18 at 5:00 pm Est from University Hospital in Cincinnati. John Howington, M.D., director, division of Thoracic Surgery, will be demonstrating a Video Assisted Thoracic Surgery (VATS) with lobectomy. This event will be moderated by Walter Merrill, M.D., chief, section of cardiothoracic surgery. The procedure being broadcast is performed on patients with small peripheral lung cancers, and is done with 2 to 3 small portals placed between the ribs and a three-inch access incision in the chest, without spreading the ribs. Because fewer and smaller incisions are made, the patient has a shorter recovery and is in less pain. Viewers to the live webcast will have the ability to email questions directly to the OR for an on-camera response. A preview video is currently available at
