At our Group Florence Nightingale Chest Diseases Department, we successfully serve in the examination, diagnosis and treatment of the related diseases.
Our center successfully performs the latest treatment procedures in airway diseases such as COPD and asthma, and allergic and non-allergic asthma treatments are also successfully performed. For endobronchial volume reduction procedures, which have been on the agenda in recent years and have achieved successful results in COPD, the latest procedures are closely followed and performed.
Our expertise as a team in chest diseases discipline are;
Diagnostic and Interventional bronchoscopy
Treatment of tracheal tumors and strictures
