The Interventional Pulmonology Program at The Lung Institute is one of the largest lung centers in Texas that provides interventional pulmonology. As part of our comprehensive lung program, our board-certified interventional pulmonologists perform advanced diagnostic bronchoscopy, pleural procedures, and therapeutic bronchoscopy.
The Interventional Pulmonology Program offers consultation services for both malignant and benign disorders of the lung and the airways and a multidisciplinary approach to evaluation and management.
Our multidisciplinary team includes board-certified interventional pulmonologists, thoracic surgeons, head and neck surgeons, oncologists, anesthesiologists, and other specialists as needed. Together, we provide a comprehensive multidisciplinary approach to better treat and diagnose patients with complex airway, lung, and pleural diseases.
We are at the forefront of innovation in advanced diagnostic and treatment technology through sound clinical research, experimental trials, and clinical services.
