Airway ( Trachea & Bronchus) Chest of Surgery
Tumors can block the airway and cause breathing problems. Most of the tumors that form in the trachea and bronchi in adults are cancerous, but a few are noncancerous. Multidisciplinary experts at Max hospital are experienced in selecting the appropriate treatments for patients with tracheal and bronchial tumors. Treatment may include surgery, bronchoscopic treatments or radiation therapy, either alone or in combination. In patients who are not candidates for complete surgical removal of the tumor, these therapies may be used to help restore breathing and slow tumor progression.
Other airway diseases treated are tracheal stenosis, tracheobronchomalacia and tracheoesophageal fistula.
