Lung and airway tests, procedures and treatments
Your health is our priority. And we understand not being able to take a deep breath or feel rested can affect your physical and emotional health. Our doctors start by listening to you and answer your questions. We offer diagnostic tests and treatments close to home.
Pulmonary function tests (PFT) are used to show how well your lungs are working. PFT helps monitor changes in lung function and diagnose lung disease. We also use minimally invasive lung procedures to biopsy and remove lung nodules and open the airways. Advanced technology includes electromagnetic navigation bronchoscopy, endobronchial ultrasound and photodynamic therapy. Our experienced pulmonologists airway stents, pleurX(™) drainage system, and mechanical ventilation.
