Welcome to Neumark Surgery, your trusted source for medical expertise in the field of pneumothorax treatment. Our team of experienced doctors, medical centers, and plastic surgeons specializes in providing top-quality care and innovative treatment options for primary pneumothorax.

What is Primary Pneumothorax?

Primary pneumothorax occurs when there is a sudden, unexplained collapse of the lung, leading to the accumulation of air in the space between the lung and the chest wall. This typically happens in individuals without any underlying lung diseases or known risk factors.

Treatment Options

1. Observation

In some cases, primary pneumothorax may resolve on its own without requiring immediate intervention. During the observation period, doctors carefully monitor the patient's condition and may recommend rest and limited physical activity. While observation may be suitable for small pneumothorax cases, larger ones often require further treatment.

2. Thoracentesis

Thoracentesis is a minimally invasive procedure that involves the insertion of a needle or small tube into the chest cavity to remove excess air or fluid. This procedure can successfully treat primary pneumothorax by alleviating the pressure and allowing the lung to re-expand. At Neumark Surgery, our skilled doctors and medical centers are equipped to perform thoracentesis safely and effectively.

3. Pleurodesis

Pleurodesis is a surgical procedure that aims to prevent recurrent episodes of primary pneumothorax. The procedure involves inducing inflammation in the pleural space, causing the lung to stick to the chest wall and preventing the accumulation of air. Our highly experienced plastic surgeons at Neumark Surgery specialize in pleurodesis and provide personalized treatment plans based on individual patient needs.

4. Video-Assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery (VATS)

In cases where conservative treatments are ineffective or recurrent pneumothorax occurs, video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) may be recommended as a more definitive solution. VATS is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that enables surgeons to visualize and access the pleural space using a small video camera and specialized tools. This procedure allows for the repair of air leaks and the removal of any blebs or bullae that may be causing recurrent primary pneumothorax.
