Interventional Pulmonology

People with lung and airway (pulmonary) or chest (thoracic) diseases benefit from interventional pulmonology treatment through highly qualified and experienced physicians.

As one of the top interventional pulmonology programs in the Rocky Mountain region, SCL Health Medical Group - Lung Nodule Clinic performs lung procedures to diagnose and treat a wide variety of lung conditions. We use minimally invasive robotic bronchoscopy technology which allows our physicians to obtain tissue samples from deep within the lungs where 70 percent of nodules reside.
