While chronic bronchitis can be a symptom of many underlying conditions such as tuberculosis or another lung disease, it is most often caused by smoking. You may also have a cough that produces excess phlegm daily.

Our staff uses endoscopic, imaging and physiologic testing procedures. In addition, we take advantage of advanced diagnostic techniques involving thoracoscopy in collaboration with specialists in radiology and thoracic surgery.
