A 60-year-old patient was diagnosed with a T3N0M0 squamous cell carcinoma. A multidisciplinary tumor board decided to perform a hybrid procedure of left upper lobectomy with resection of three involved ribs. The course of the surgery was uneventful, and the patient was discharged home on postoperative day five.
