Lung-Pulmonology

Bronchiectasis and NTM

Bronchiectasis causes widening and inflammation of the airways. Patients with bronchiectasis often have nontuberculous mycobacteria(NTM), which are naturally occurring organisms that may be inhaled to cause lung disease. The pulmonologists at the Mount Sinai Health System are well versed in diagnosing and treating patients who suffer from both of these lung impairments. We provide a comprehensive program that includes access to the latest research and clinical trials.
