In brief: YES

Yes.
It is performed primarily by thoracic surgeons for specific indications. While commonly performed, it is a serious procedure that requires appropriate training and understanding of the anatomy. Patients generally do well, but complain of sore throat more so then the actual surgical incision. Be well.
