Pulmonology

The COVID-19 pandemic and deteriorating lung health globally have brought a renewed focus on pulmonology – the highly specialized branch of medicine that deals with infectious, structural, inflammatory, neoplastic, and autoimmune disorders of the respiratory system. Timely consultation with experienced pulmonologists can change the outcome of how you manage chronic respiratory disorders and diseases like asthenia, tuberculosis, chest pain, fever, asthma, chronic cough, lung cancer, COPD, sleep apnea, etc.
