This procedure is used to examine the breathing passages of the lung. This can either be a diagnostic procedure or therapeutic procedure. With collaboration of the Endoscopy Centre, we provide a full range of endoscopy services, including diagnostic and therapeutic bronchoscopy, transbronchial needle aspiration of mediastinal lymphnodes with or without endobronchial ultrasound, thin scope and radial probe endobronchial ultrasound for peripheral lung lesions.

Lung Cancer Detection
In Hong Kong, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer mortality in past decades. The poor prognosis is largely due to late presentation and an inability to cure the late-stage lung cancer.

The centre offers tailor-made early lung cancer detection services for the high-risk population, such as:
For the unfortunate sufferers of lung cancer, the centre brings in wide-ranging medical, surgical & oncology specialists to render expert care, including:
Smoking Cessation Service
Smoking is the single most important risk factor for non-communicable diseases, and the risk of smoking-related diseases falls after smoking cessation. In 2005, the first five leading causes of mortality in Hong Kong were all related to smoking. Due to the physical dependence induced by nicotine addiction, however, it is not easy to quit smoking without specialist assistance. The centre offers tailor-made smoking cessation services, using both pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies.
