Lung Biopsy

A lung biopsy takes a small sample of your lung to test it for lung disease, cancer or another condition.

At Ramsay Health Care, you can rest assured that you are in safe hands. We regularly perform lung biopsies including a percutaneous needle biopsy, bronchoscopy and biopsy, thoracoscopic biopsy and open biopsy if required.

An initial convenient consultation without waiting can simply be booked at a Ramsay Hospital of your choice. Your expert consultant will explain how you need to prepare for your biopsy and what will happen during your procedure.

Specially trained interventional radiologists or lung specialists perform the latest image-guided lung biopsies.

If you require an endoscope lung biopsy, many of our Ramsay hospitals have dedicated state-of-the-art endoscopy suites that are JAG accredited for their high-quality endoscopy services.

You will also benefit from a fast turnaround of biopsy results or further treatment.

All Ramsay hospitals follow strict protocols to control and prevent infection, including Covid 19.
