Interventional pulmonology is rather new in the field of pulmonary medicine. This utilizes endoscopy and other tools in order to diagnose and treat various conditions in the lungs and chest. Interventional pulmonology procedures are the solution to avoiding more invasive surgery.
Procedures include but are not limited to:
- Flexible bronchoscopy
- EBUS – endobronchial ultrasound
- Lung biopsy techniques
- Airway stent
- Navigational bronchoscopy
These procedures are generally safer and decrease recovery time, as compared to surgery. Our practice merges new, state-of-the-art treatment with personalized patient care. Dr. Czarnecki, “the Lung Doc”, is trained and skilled in all pulmonary procedures. For more information, please contact us at (423) 710-3864 or request an appointment online.
