The branch of medicine that deals with the respiratory tract is referred to as pulmonology. It manages patients who require life support and artificial ventilation, and is also known as chest medicine. Asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), chronic bronchitis, lung cancer, pneumonia, interstitial lung disease, and tuberculosis are all common disorders that affect the chest. The field has evolved rapidly with newer diagnostic and therapeutic procedures available for solving complex lung disorders.
The Department of Pulmonary Medicine at Kokilaben Hospital, Navi Mumbai Hospital offers comprehensive care across the broad spectrum of advanced diagnostic procedures (endo bronchial ultrasound, endoscopic ultrasound, spirometry), innovative therapeutic techniques (rigid bronchoscopy, endobronchial brachytherapy, bronchial thermoplasty) to surgical interventions (lung volume reduction, video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery) and study of sleep disorders, management of lung cancer and lung transplantation. Our highly trained doctors are supported by modern technology to treat patients with better outcomes.
Our Department utilises an evidence-based approach in patient care. This ensures excellent outcomes that match international quality standards. We undertake continuous training to develop the skills of our healthcare team.
