Time: IST : 6:30 pm, CEST (France): 3:00pm, MYT : 9:00pm

Dear Colleagues & Friends,

Interventional Pulmonology in India, in particular, has dramatically advanced, particularly in the last decade or so. I left for USA for residency and fellowship in Pulmonary Critical Care Medicine in 2009 and by the time I came back 10 years later, I was pleasantly surprised by the cutting edge work being done here, matching and exceeding often to anything I had been exposed to there before.

Hyderabad, one of the fastest growing cities in India has come to establish itself as a leader in Healthcare, Pharma and Information Technology industry. From humble beginnings in 1989, Yashoda Hospitals went on to become the leading private healthcare provider in the
city with more than 2000 beds spread across 3 locations. It has been 30 years since the start of Yashoda Hospitals and we have grown ever since. We will soon be opening a new 2 million square feet state-of-the-art facility in “Hi- Tech city” area of the city.

Yashoda Hospital pioneered many advances in different specialties in India, like introducing India’s first 3T Intra-operative MRI, treating the highest number of patients globally by RapidArc therapy, performing more than 100 liver transplants per year, performing the first ever combined Heart Lung Transplant in the region, and recently launching the world’s first Motorized Spirus Enteroscopy, besides many other innovations.

Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine is an area of particular pride, doing the highest number of Bronchial Thermoplasty cases in the country, launching Navigational Bronchoscopy, Vapor Ablation for COPD, besides doing large volumes of advanced pulmonary interventions like
Tracheobronchial Stenting, Cryo, Linear, Radial EBUS, Thoracoscopy & other interventions. Apart from these, Yashoda Hospital has been regularly organizing multiple national and international Intervention Pulmonary conferences as well.

COVID-19 is a once in a lifetime pandemic, affecting every country to a greater or lesser extent. We all are getting used to working with PPEs, social distancing and other measures for the foreseeable future. We congratulate our excellent pulmonary team and all the esteemed faculty, leaders and pioneers in their fields from all over the world for organizing and participating in this one of a kind high-quality webinar and video series. The Interventional Pulmonology Virtual Meet is highly recommended for all the practicing and upcoming pulmonary specialists, and specialists with interest in related fields like thoracic & pediatric, besides other specialties who I am sure will be much enriched by the experience.

Best Regards,
