Pulmonology is concerned with diseases of the lungs and bronchial tubes, and upper respiratory tract (nose, pharynx and throat) & sleep disorders. It becomes imperative to solve the many major & minor medical challenges faced by people afflicted with conditions related to their breathing, as it is an integral part of an individual’s life and can lead to reduced participation in activities & other limitations on one’s life.
The Centre for Respiratory Disease & Sleep Disorder at Sarvodaya Hospital offers comprehensive diagnosis & treatment under the guidance of a qualified team of pulmonologists who offer a wide spectrum of services. We understand the value of our patient’s lives and thus we maintain higher hygiene standards to strive to provide individualized care for each person, providing the right treatment based on an accurate diagnosis and an assessment of the patient’s needs.

Bronchoscope: We use this latest endoscopic technique to visualize the inside of the airways for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. This instrument is inserted into the airways through the nose or mouth, or through a tracheostomy for the examination.
EBUS: EBUS allows physicians to perform a technique known as TBNA to obtain tissue or fluid samples from the lungs and surrounding lymph nodes under Ultrasound guidance without any conventional surgery. The samples can be used for diagnosing and staging lung cancer, detecting infections, identifying inflammatory diseases that affect the lungs.
What makes EBUS different:
During an Endobronchial Ultrasound (EBUS):
Benefits of EBUS:
Thoracoscope: We use an enhanced thorascope, an endoscope-like device for medical thoracoscopy to examine the pleural space (inside the chest) through a little hole in the chest.
