Our team is on the leading edge of lung treatment approaches. These procedures may be an option to lengthen your life and help relieve your symptoms while you await a donated lung.
- Lung volume reduction surgery is performed by a thoracic surgeon to improve quality of life in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
- Interventional bronchoscopy with bronchial dilatations, stent placement, endobronchial laser procedures can be performed by an interventional pulmonologist.
- Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) provides direct oxygenation to the blood with an innovative device that allows you to move, eat and even gain strength. (By contrast, traditional ventilators can damage lungs by pushing air into them.)
