Airway Diseases

Airway disorders are varied and often respond to bronchoscopic intervention.

Airway diseases have many causes and symptoms. A single abnormal area may be caused by an injury, while multiple regions develop as the result of an underlying condition. Symptoms include difficulty breathing, coughing blood, and wheezing. Diagnosis includes chest X-ray, CT scan, and outpatient bronchoscopy. Central airway diseases are treated using interventional pulmonology. We can remove or ablate benign tumors, including bronchoscopic removal for localized tumors.
