    Our bronchoscopy services are offered both at inpatient and outpatient sites and include flexible laryngoscopy, bronchoscopy, bronchial lavages and bronchial biopsies. Pediatric flexible bronchoscopy technology is a minimally invasive technique for directly visualizing and evaluating your child’s airway anatomy using a flexible fiberoptic viewing tube.

    Pulmonary function testing services

    Our pulmonary function testing services include a group of tests that allow us to measure how well the lungs are working. We conduct several different types including spirometry, fraction exhaled nitric oxide testing and exercise testing. These are non-invasive methods in which the patient demonstrates how fast and hard they can blow to assess the function of the lungs. Pulmonary function tests help physicians understand and evaluate different types of lung disorders and assess how well lungs are responding to certain treatments.
