Mary Lanning's new robotic technology benefits lung care.

Robotic technology, first used by Mary Lanning Healthcare’s surgical services unit in June, has made lung cancer diagnoses much easier for community patients to accept.

Auris Health’s Monarch platform system is a less invasive alternative procedure that allows doctors to biopsy small, potentially cancerous lung abnormalities while the patient is sedated. And unlike bronchoscopic procedures performed by radiologists via computed tomography (CT) scans, this new treatment allows for deeper exploratory penetration into the lungs and smaller previously unreachable airways. while allowing access to the lungs while greatly reducing the risk of lung collapse during the process. .
