If you have been experiencing persistent respiratory problems, a bronchoscopy could play a key role in finding a solution for you. This test can determine the root cause of your lung problems by finding lung infections, blockages or tumors, irregular bleeding, or excess mucus.
A bronchoscopy consists of one of our specialized physicians guiding a small, flexible instrument called a bronchoscope down your nose or throat until it reaches your lungs. This instrument will then allow us to examine your airway using the camera on the end of the bronchoscope. Many people fear that this is a painful procedure; however, our team here at Gulf Coast Pulmonary and Sleep is fully equipped and ready to make this as painless as possible for you. We want to find the cause of your problem and develop the solution we see best fit for you!
