Interventional Pulmonology

About the UI Health Interventional Pulmonology Program

Director: Kevin Kovitz, MD, MBA

Interventional Pulmonology is an area of medicine dedicated to the minimally invasive procedural aspects of thoracic disease for diagnosis and treatment. Patients have both benign and malignant non-cardiac diseases of the chest. Patients will typically have primary or metastatic tumors of the chest, mediastinum or pleura, other pleural disease, complex airway abnormalities or other chest disorders requiring procedural intervention. Our team focuses on obtaining a diagnosis and treatment plan in the most efficient, rapid and least invasive manner.

We focus on minimally invasive basic and advanced
diagnostic and treatment procedures such as:

  • Complex Airway Disease
  • Bronchial Thermoplasty
  • Endobronchial Ultrasound (EBUS)-our team has the longest standing and largest experience in the region
  • Lung cancer
  • Lung nodules
  • Navigational Bronchoscopy
  • Pleural Disease Service
  • Procedure related treatments of Asthma and COPD/Emphysema
