- For Patients
Interventional pulmonology is a subspecialty of pulmonology that focuses on the use of advanced diagnostic and therapeutic techniques to treat patients with lung cancer, airway disorders and pleural diseases. The interventional pulmonology program at CARE Hospitals is one of the best in the country, providing diagnostic and therapeutic services and cutting-edge treatment in pulmonary medicine. We have specialized pulmonary medicine expertise, combined with the most sophisticated techniques and technologies available to diagnose and treat patients, who would generally be treated with traditional invasive procedures.
The institute offers specially trained physicians, nurses and allied healthcare professionals well qualified to take care of critically ill patients.
The respiratory care centre at CARE Hospitals offers full-fledged services for respiratory care and chest medicine. The goal of the respiratory care centre is to maintain healthy lungs and prevent a decline in lung functions. Lung treatment includes the use of airway clearance techniques that mobilize secretions and inhalation therapy to deliver medication to the lungs, early treatment of respiratory illnesses and the use of medication that have proven effective for the patient.
With the support of critical care clinicians, respiratory care is provided to critically ill and ventilated patients with multiple complex disorders, involving the respiratory system. Post-operative patients too are taken care of.
The inpatient services offered by the Institute of Pulmonology include complete evaluation and treatment of various lung conditions, including diagnostic and therapeutic procedures such as bronchoscopies, thoracentesis, pleural biopsies, pulmonary function studies, cardiopulmonary exercise studies and sleep studies. We ensure that patients receive the highest level of expertise and compassionate care. Our physicians are involved in clinical research to discover breakthrough treatments.
CARE Hospitals’ sleep disorders centre is a multispecialty comprehensive program to diagnose and treat sleep disorders in children and adults. The center has specialists in neurology, pediatrics, pulmonary medicine, psychiatry, psychology and family medicine. It provides excellent clinical care for patients with a range of sleep disorders, as well as education for patients and their families.
Conditions treated are:
The institute offers treatment options that utilize minimally invasive procedures. Our surgeons employ state-of-the-art surgical techniques and cancer therapies, with a focus on research for early diagnosis, better cancer staging and prediction of recurrent disease in cases of lung and esophageal cancer. We adopt a multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of lung cancer, esophageal cancer and other diseases of the chest. The thoracic surgeons at CARE Hospitals perform a range of minimally invasive procedures for conditions of the lung and chest wall. Compared to the surgery performed through a long, open-chest incision, minimally invasive lung surgery provides several important benefits for patients, which include:
Our pulmonologists are competent in performing procedures like pleural fluid tapping and chest tube placement.
Functioning as a tertiary referral center for respiratory problems, we provide facilities like bronchial artery embolization, imaging guided diagnostics and therapeutic procedures of lung lesions.
A team of dedicated surgical specialists performs surgical procedures on lungs on top priority.
All kinds of lung surgeries are performed, such as decortication, lobectomies and pneumonectomies, rigid bronchoscopy for foreign body removal and endotracheal stent placement.
