The Pulmonology Department at Sunrise Hospital focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and management of diseases and disorders related to the respiratory system. It deals with conditions affecting the lungs and airways, such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pneumonia, tuberculosis, lung cancer, and various respiratory infections.
The Pulmonology department provides advanced care for lung and respiratory diseases such as Bronchial Asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Bronchitis, Lung Cancer, Acute and Chronic Respiratory Failure, Interstitial Lung Diseases, Pulmonary Hypertension, Pneumonia, Tuberculosis, Pleural Disease, Occupational Lung Diseases, Allergies, Advanced Lung Diseases, severe breathlessness, pneumothorax, massive hemoplysis, severe pneumonia and more.
We have facilities to admit critically ill patients in intensive care units, with advanced invasive and non invasive ventilator facilities and monitors. Pulmonology OPD services is available on all days. Department is supported by interventional radiology, Thoracic surgery and critical care team to ensure specialised services.
Our State-of-the-art Pulmonary Function Lab performs advanced studies such as Spirometry, Lung Volumes, Diffusion Capacity, Respiratory Drive, Airway Resistance and Chest Wall Compliance etc.
The department also performs sophisticated treatments such as Video Bronchoscopy, Thoracoscopy, Interventional Pulmonology and deliver care to patients with a variety of disorders.
Treatment options involve medication management, pulmonary rehabilitation, oxygen therapy, and in severe cases, surgical interventions such as Lung Transplant or Thoracic Surgery.
Interventional Pulmonology has revolutionized the field of Pulmonary Medicine by providing the most advanced minimally invasive procedures to diagnose and treat both malignant and non-malignant disorders of the lungs and airways and relieving symptoms that cause breathing discomfort.
Removing Endoscopic Bronchial Tumors: A Bronchoscope is a flexible tube with a camera at the end that is used to deliver laser and other cancer-killing technologies to tumors buried deep inside the lungs.
Placing fiducial markers: These tiny objects are placed in or near a tumor as a point of reference during stereotactic radiosurgery, a nonsurgical, precision-focused form of radiation therapy.
Inserting airway stents: A stent is inserted to secure an open airway and help patients breathe better.
