Interventional Pulmonology

We provide minimally invasive techniques to diagnose and treat patients with lung cancer and other cancers that may involve the chest. In addition, we offer a complete range of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures for pleural diseases and benign conditions that affect the central airways. We work closely with referring primary care physicians, pulmonologists, oncologists, radiation oncologists and thoracic surgeons to coordinate the multi-disciplinary care of our patients.
