    Collapse Overview
    My interest is providing care for patients with benign and malignant central airway obstruction, lung cancer and diseases of the pleura. My goal is to provide expeditious care in a multidisciplinary fashion with outstanding communication to both the patient and the referring physicians.

    In addition to airway obstruction from malignancy, an interventional pulmonary specialist treats non-malignant central airway obstruction due to diseases such as tracheal or sub-glottic stenosis, tracheobronchomalacia, relapsing polychondritis, relapsing respiratory papillomatosis, Wegener’s granulomatosis and foreign body removal.

    Patients with lung nodules or masses as well as hilar and mediastinal adenopathy are evaluated and treated in a multidisciplinary approach with members of interventional pulmonology, medical oncology, thoracic surgery and radiation oncology.
