EBUS is a minimally invasive procedure that can be performed on an outpatient basis using local anesthesia and conscious sedation. In using EBUS, the physician avoids the traditional "blind approach" and can sample a variety of lymph nodes.
The combination of EBUS and EUS puts FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital on the cutting edge of diagnosing and staging diseases of the chest and increases the likelihood of more accurate staging and appropriate treatment of lung cancer. This in turn leads to better prognosis and best treatment plans.
