Robotic-Assisted Bronchoscopy


Dignity Health performs robotic-assisted bronchoscopy that can reach all 18 segments of the lungs. The ultra thin catheter and integrated vision probe provides the physician direct vision to reach all parts of the lungs. 

During the bronchoscopy, the physician guides an ultra-thin catheter through your airway to the area of your lung for biopsy.

You can reach the Interventional Pulmonary and Advanced Diagnostics team at Norton Thoracic Institute by phone at (602) 406-4000.
