Fortis Escorts Hospital, Faridabad has introduced the latest, state-of-the-art technology in the field of interventional pulmonology, the Cryo technique. The technology will enable biopsies of endobronchial tumours (tumours inside the windpipe). and will be crucial in improving clinical outcomes for lung cancer patients. The technique has been introduced under the aegis of Dr Ravi Shekhar Jha, Additional Director and Consultant, Pulmonology, Fortis Escorts Hospital Faridabad.
Dr Jha, Additional Director and HOD, Pulmonology, Fortis Escorts Hospital, Faridabad said, “Cryo-technology helps in early diagnosis and palliative care in later stages of cancer also. The minimally invasive procedure is used to remove larger cancerous outgrowths in the lung using a freezing process that prevents bleeding that occurs with a normal biopsy. This is one of the safest procedures for tumour debulking."
