The Department of Pulmonology diagnoses and treats all diseases of the airways and lung tissue. As the largest pulmonology clinic in Switzerland, we are able to offer the full range of modern diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in the field of lung disease.

We use the most advanced and most gentle technologies in the field of thorascopy.

Our sleep laboratory clarifies disorders of breathing during sleep and allows the use of customized ventilation methods. The Department of Pneumology works with the Department of Internal Medicine and is significantly involved in the Lung Treatment Center at University Hospital Basel.

In addition to clinical work, we train doctors as specialists in pulmonology. In addition, we regularly conduct training for practicing physicians. The Lung Academy offers physicians throughout Switzerland a unique hands-on opportunity to learn pulmonary function techniques. Through both clinical and basic research, the Department of Pneumology contributes significantly both nationally and internationally to the extension of knowledge in the field of lung disease.
