About the department
The Department of Pulmonology at the Medical Park Gebze Hospital offers the full range of medical services in this field. The department's doctors mostly diagnose and treat the patients with lung cancer, bronchial asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia, pleurisy, sarcoidosis, pneumothorax and pulmonary embolism. The field of competence of the specialists includes the diagnostics and treatment of allergic reactions. To make an accurate diagnosis, the department has advanced equipment for imaging examinations, pulmonary function tests, bronchoscopy and allergic tests. The Chief Physician of the department is Assoc. Prof. Dr. med. Serdar Kalemci.
The priority area of the department's specialization is the treatment of lung cancer. Thanks to the excellent diagnostic equipment and the high competence of the department's pulmonologists, it is possible to achieve positive treatment results even at the advanced stages of the pathology. The choice of specific therapy methods is purely individual in each case. When developing a treatment regimen, the department's specialists always focus on the type of a tumor (non-small cell or small cell, central or peripheral cancer), the stage of the disease, the presence of metastases, the age and general condition of the patient. The main therapeutic techniques include chemotherapy, targeted therapy, immunotherapy, radiation therapy, cryoablation, radiofrequency ablation and surgical treatment (sparing organ-preserving surgeries, such as wedge-shaped or segmental resection, lobectomy, pneumonectomy).
The department is also highly effective in the treatment of bronchial asthma. According to the results of the diagnostics and taking into account the etiological causes of the disease, the department's specialists develop a comprehensive and most effective treatment regimen. To systemically treat bronchial asthma, the doctors mostly prescribe the inhaled corticosteroids, long-acting beta-agonists, leukotriene synthesis inhibitors, inhalations with various medicinal agents.
The doctors also have extensive experience in the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. As a rule, the treatment involves drug therapy using next-generation drugs, as well as a surgical intervention. As additional therapeutic measures, oxygen therapy and pulmonological rehabilitation can be applied. The aim of the therapy is to maximally get rid of the manifestations of pathology, stop the progression of the disease, prolong patient's life and at the same time significantly improve its quality.
