Interventional pulmonology is a relatively new and rapidly growing field. As one of a few fully trained interventional pulmonologists in the world, I feel fortunate to have been part of the development of this field and to have published articles on techniques never before performed. I am board certified in internal medicine, pulmonary medicine, and critical care medicine.

I perform both flexible and rigid bronchoscopy to ensure adequate care of many disease processes. I specialize in endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS), electromagnetic navigational bronchoscopy (superDimension), laser bronchoscopy, autofluorescence bronchoscopy, narrow-band imaging, airway stenting, and whole-lung lavage for pulmonary alveolar proteinosis.

I also treat benign and cancerous diseases of the airway, including malignant airway obstruction; tracheal tumors; tracheal stenosis and bronchostenosis (narrowing of the windpipe); and tracheobronchomalacia (excessive collapse of the windpipe with breathing or coughing). Complications of lung surgery, such as surgical stump breakdown or bronchopleural fistula, can be managed via bronchoscopy.

My research interest lies in optimizing advanced bronchoscopic diagnostics as well as therapeutic outcomes after rigid bronchoscopy and pleural procedures for symptom relief and improving quality of life. We are actively enrolling patients on two prospective clinical trials to evaluate the benefits of bronchoscopically implanted transponders in optimizing advanced radiation treatment techniques. I have coauthored publications regarding lung cancer and advanced interventional pulmonology techniques including EBUS. I have also designed and directed many successful CME meetings at MSK and lectured at local, national, and international meetings.
