Our Interventional Pulmonology Program offers advanced, minimally invasive diagnosis and treatment options for thoracic abnormalities and pulmonary disease. As part of the Chest Clinic, we provide care for lung cancer, airway disease, and pleural effusions, and advanced treatments for benign lung diseases like emphysema and asthma.
Care and Treatment
Expertise in Evaluating and Treating Thoracic Abnormalities
Trained to perform complex airway procedures, our pulmonologists offer expert diagnosis and treatment, and are actively involved in clinical research to advance interventional techniques. They work closely with other Stanford specialists in thoracic oncology, radiation oncology, thoracic surgery, radiology, otolaryngology, and thoracic anesthesiology.
For people with airway disorders, benign or malignant lung disease, and pleural disease, we perform minimally invasive procedures, primarily on an outpatient basis in our Endoscopy Suite.
Lung Stanford Nodule Assessment Program (Lung-SNAP)
Our Lung-SNAP team provides evaluation and treatment for pulmonary nodules and airway complications from transplants. We also serve as a referral center for emergency procedures like foreign body retrieval and tumor removal from airways, treatment of hemoptysis (coughing blood), and airway stenting.
Stanford Health Care provides comprehensive services to refer and track patients, as well as the latest information and news for physicians and office staff. For help with all referral needs and questions, visit Referring Physicians.
