The use of this camera allows surgeons to operate through small incisions that are usually inside a person’s chest wall. This means there is no need to open the chest by giving a large incision. 

Patients who undergo thoracoscopic surgery usually experience less pain than those who receive traditional open chest surgeries, while the recovery process is much faster.
