Interventional Pulmonology Virtual Meet Linear Endobronchial Ultrasound Day-1


Date: October 17-18, 2020

Time: IST : 7:00 pm


Technology has opened up new avenues of research, exploration and innovations thereby making the healthcare industry more effective and driven than it has ever been. As a result of the development of these brilliant innovations, healthcare experts continue to find ways to improvise diagnosis, surgical procedure, and improved patient care.

At Yashoda Hospitals, the Department of Interventional Pulmonology has a dedicated team of highly experienced Pulmonologists coupled with latest infrastructure and advanced technology which provides comprehensive treatment for a broad range of pulmonary diseases. We have the best facility in Interventional Pulmonology equipped with Vapor Ablation, Navigation Bronchoscopy, Bronchial Thermoplasty, EBUS, Cryoablation, Tracheobronchial Stenting and more. The role of bronchoscopy in the evaluation and treatment of respiratory disease has evolved dramatically over the last decade and it is an exciting time for interventional pulmonology (IP) and advanced bronchoscopy procedures.

It is with this very aim that Yashoda Hospitals is proud to organize an International Interventional Pulmonology Virtual Meet with primary focus on ‘Linear EBUS: An Update’.

Our aspiration is to make this virtual meet an oasis for exchanging ideas with your peers, acquiring new knowledge in advanced therapeutic and diagnostic modalities, and staying up-to-date on trends and issues shaping our field.

We look forward to seeing you.

Best Regards,

Dr. G. Surender Rao

Dear Colleagues & Friends,

As a pulmonologist, at the outset I would like to congratulate you for your Yeoman service at the frontlines during this COVID pandemic despite the obvious risks involved. Personally I am cautiously optimistic we are at the tail end of the pandemic with decreasing numbers and advances in treatment options and hopefully a vaccination soon.

Welcome everybody for a free one of a kind informative and interactive virtual Interventional Pulmonary Meet on October 17 &18, 2020 with leading international faculty from across countries and continents besides the leading luminaries in the country.

The theme of the program is ‘Linear EBUS: An Update’.

The aim of this scientific program is to equip you with everything about linear EBUS which is almost becoming as ubiquitous as CT scanning, ultrasound guided central lines etc and will be an essential requirement for every pulmonologist in the future. And hence unlike a short didactic on that, we bring you fantastic set of presentations spread over two days for an in-depth perspective and all you wanted to know about linear EBUS. We have the best faculty from USA, Denmark, Australia, Singapore besides the top faculty from across the country.

In addition to being an excellent forum for information sharing, the virtual meet will also provide a great networking opportunity for all the participants.

Yashoda Hospital from its humble origins 30 years ago, has over the years with focus on high quality patient care, service, supported by latest equipment, infrastructure and dedicated doctors and healthcare staff evolved to be among the premier healthcare providers in the country particularly in pulmonary department. We believe in shared and collaborative efforts for best outcomes and are glad to bring you this high quality webinar and would keep supporting similar efforts in the future too.

Please save the dates and be ready with any questions. Your presence will surely contribute to the enrichment of our discussion and your support will be highly appreciated.

Best Regards,
