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 department comprises two of the best pulmonologists in Coimbatore. The 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.

Our Lungs Specialist In Coimbatore 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is pulmonology surgery?
In interventional pulmonology, endoscopy and other technologies are used to diagnose and treat diseases in the lungs and chest. These therapies may be performed by pulmonologists (lung specialists) with further training. Cardiothoracic and other surgeons frequently do interventional pulmonology operations.
Noisy breathing or wheezing indicates that something unexpected is clogging or narrowing your lungs' airways. Coughing up blood could indicate a problem with your lungs or upper respiratory system. It's a symptom of a health condition, regardless of where it's coming from.
Irritants that damage your lungs and airways over time create chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. COPD is primarily caused by smoking, but it can also affect nonsmokers.
Sharp or stabbing chest discomfort is common when a lung infection is present. When coughing or breathing deeply, the chest pain tends to get worse. Sharp sensations might sometimes be felt in your mid to upper back.
The pulmonology experts at Sri Ramakrishna Hospital offer a complete care for lung diseases, along with the basic treatment procedures, they also offer advanced options like cryobiopsy, thoracoscopy, fine-needle aspiration cytology, and many more depending on the need of the person.
