RESPIRATORY MEDICINE

RESPIRATORY MEDICINE

Nothing wins like persistence. Perseverance has a power that envelopes within it the secret of life. Had it not been for the consistent string of breathing, the instrument called body would never have met the music of life. The keys that lie behind this string are our ‘Lungs’, the epitomes of persistence.

Pulmonology, the branch that deals with diseases of the respiratory tract (Lungs) is one of the vital specialities. The diseases associated with respiratory tract include asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), tuberculosis, lung cancer, pleural effusion, lung abscess, empyema, bronchiectasis, pneumonia, pneumothorax, pulmonary fibrosis, sarcoidosis, and sleep related breathing disorders.

Pulmonologists backed by well-equipped laboratory help restore the patient’s healthy state.
