Home Major Department Pulmonology


It is no exaggeration to say that the Department of Pulmonology of Sri Ramakrishna Hospital is among the foremost of its kind in the country. Our equipment, facilities and expertise in diagnosing and treating diseases of the respiratory tract have been set to global benchmarks. We were the first in India to have an exercise physiology test system with breath-to-breath analysis of respiratory gases.

We routinely perform bronchoscopies, thoracoscopies, pleural drainage procedures, pleurodesis, CT guided FNAC (fine needle aspiration cytology) and FNAB (fine needle aspiration biopsy).

Patients suffering from hemoptysis benefit from bronchial artery embolisation while those affected by diffuse lung disease benefit from cryobiopsies. If you suffer from pulmonary disorders, we can and will help you.
