Achieving leading-edge results for a wide range of lung issues.

Lung Cancer: Diagnosing lung abnormalities found on a CT scan or chest X-ray used to require a surgical biopsy. This caused many patients to hesitate, possibly delaying important diagnoses. Thanks to endoscopic Cellvizio technology and inReach™ superDimension electromagnetic navigation bronchoscopy, this is no longer necessary. Narrow lung passages can be much more easily accessed.

We were the first facility in the Midwest to offer TruFreeze Spray Cryotherapy, which uses liquid nitrogen to freeze cancerous tissue. This method is more effective and causes less pain for patients than the traditional method of treating tumors because it destroys targeted tumor cells but preserves the underlying collagen structure.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD): Advanced pulmonary function testing equipment helps us diagnose COPD. We can then tailor a plan for you, offering the most current drug therapy and rehabilitation services available.

Asthma: We are one of only five centers in Indiana to use NIOX MINO for exhaled nitric oxide testing. This monitors airway activity and allows us to more effectively test for symptom levels, and incremental response to asthma treatment.

Dr. David Wilson was the first doctor in Indiana to use the Alair® Bronchial Thermoplasty System to help severe asthma patients gain better airway control. Our capabilities also include new bronchial thermoplasty procedures.

Pulmonary Hypertension: We provide expert management of this type of high blood pressure in lung arteries. We will employ the most current drug therapy possible, to help lessen symptoms and improve your quality of life.

We are extremely proud of our record of constant innovation, and remain committed to providing ever-more promising results.
