This is where you will come to have your surgery performed. The visits to your surgeon before and after surgery will be at their consulting rooms.


A tiny camera attached to a long tube is inserted through your nose or mouth and passed down through the airways into your lungs. This allows the surgeon to make a diagnosis either by seeing directly what is causing the problem or by taking a small tissue (biopsy) or lung secretion sample.
