Robotic Bronchoscopy

National Jewish Health and Saint Joseph Hospital are among the first hospitals in the Rocky Mountain region to offer robotic bronchoscopy as minimally invasive option for patients with lung nodules and other lung concerns that need to be biopsied. Our fellowship-trained physicians have advanced training in robotic surgery.
