Bronchoscopy (Diagnostic & Interventional)

About

BRONCHOSCOPY SERVICES

  • Endobronchial Ultrasound-transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS): Used to access mediastinal and hilar lymph nodes to diagnose and stage lung cancer
  • Electromagnetic Navigation Bronchoscopy (ENB): Used to sample lung nodules and masses.
  • Rigid Bronchoscopy: Performed in operating room to open airways blocked with tumor or remove foreign bodies.
  • Bronchoscopy with endobronchial & transbronchial biopsies: Performed to diagnose benign and malignant airway and lung disorders
  • ND-YAG Laser and Argon Plasma Coagulation: Used to treat benign and malignant central airway obstruction
  • Airway Stent Placement: To relieve benign and malignant airway obstruction
  • Photodynamic Therapy: Used to relieve malignant central airway obstruction
  • Whole Lung Lavage: For treatment of pulmonary alveolar proteinosis

ADVANCED PROCEDURES

Bronchial Thermoplasty: For patients with moderate-severe persistent asthma not controlled with optimization of medical therapy, bronchial thermoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that has been proven to decrease the frequency of severe exacerbations, emergency department visits, and hospitalizations for asthma.

Bronchoscopic Lung Volume Reduction (BLVR) with Zephyr Valves: For symptomatic patients with emphysema and significant hyperinflation, the recently FDA-approved Zephyr valves can be used to induce collapse of an emphysematous lobe to achieve volume reduction and improvement in lung function, exercise capacity, and quality of life.
 
 
 

Our Team

The Oregon Clinic, Pulmonary, Critical Care & Sleep Medicine East’s nationally prominent team of physicians have expertise in evaluating and treating disorders of the respiratory system, specifically of the lungs and associated organs.
 
We treat patients with a variety of breathing complications and respiratory disorders as well as sleep related illnesses, asthma, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. We also provide a variety of minimally invasive services, including advanced diagnosis and treatment of airway tumors and lung cancer.
