• Interventional Pulmonology

    Lahey Clinic has achieved international recognition for its pioneering work in the field of interventional pulmonary medicine. This field includes diagnostic and therapeutic procedures related to critical care medicine and the care of patients with a variety of pulmonary conditions such as lung cancer, pleural disease and airway disorders.

    Lahey pulmonologists are experts in rigid bronchoscopy, a specialized procedure used in conjunction with radiation or laser therapy for the diagnosis and treatment of lung cancers. Our pulmonologists also use a diagnostic technique called autofluorescence bronchoscopy, which is used to evaluate central airways and can detect cancerous changes that cannot be seen with conventional bronchoscopy.
