Michael Halank treats patients with diseases of the lower respiratory tract (trachea and bronchi) and the lungs (pneumonia, obstructive airway diseases, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer), vascular disease of the lungs (pulmonary hypertension), pleural diseases (pleurisy, pleural mesothelioma), sleep-related disorders (obstructive or central sleep apnea syndrome), as well as respiratory muscle failure. The Departmnet maintains tight cooperation with all other disciplines of the University Hospital in Dresden. In particular, patients with malignancies are examined together with all the required experts (in the fields of surgery, pathology, radiation therapy, oncology, psycho-oncology etc.) within the framework of the University Cancer Center.
