Qualified physicians at the Pulmonary Medicine Department at the American Hospital use the most up-to-date approaches and technology to screen, diagnose and treat respiratory system diseases. We treat patients suffering from pulmonary diseases, tuberculosis, allergy-immunology, and respiratory sleep disorders.
 
We focus on pulmonary diseases with increased prevalence and widened spectrum secondary to the increase in air pollution, smoking, etc., in the most comprehensive manner strictly in line with scientific principles. Our department is equipped with all the cutting-edge technical and technological tools and devices that are necessary for the diagnosis and treatment of all pulmonary diseases.

The department’s most prominent sections are the Respiration Laboratory, where the pulmonary function tests are conducted including the Interventional Bronchoscopy Unit, where lung diseases, notably lung cancer, are diagnosed; as well as the Smoking Cessation Center that admits patients who want to recover from smoking addiction. The treatment approach to eliminate smoking addiction is jointly formulated by pulmonologists, psychiatrists and nutrition and diet experts at the center. From the general strategy customized  smoking cessation methods can be created for each patient. Moreover, we serve inpatients and outpatients from the Allergy-Immunology Unit, Sleep Disorders Unit, and Pulmonary Physiotherapy Unit.
