Bronchoscopy Surgery

A minimally surgical procedure called bronchoscopy surgery is performed to see into the airways to either diagnose or treat a variety of lung ailments. A bronchoscopy, a flexible, thin tube with a camera and light at its tip, is directed into the lungs through the mouth or nose during the surgery. Direct vision of the airways, tissue sample collection (biopsy), foreign object removal, and treatment of bleeding, infections, and malignancies are all made possible by it. Under local anesthesia and sedation, bronchoscopy is an important diagnostic and therapeutic technique for respiratory conditions such as cancer of the lungs, pneumonia, and pulmonary fibrosis.
