We provide professional support in Pediatric Chest Diseases.
The Yeditepe University Hospital Pediatric Chest Diseases
department serves in the diagnosis and treatment of lung problems such as
cystic fibrosis, pneumonia, recurrent pneumonia, chronic lung disease, and
preterm Broncho pulmonary dysplasia, as well as bronchiectasis, long-lasting
coughs, recurrent croup (laryngo-tracheo bronchitis), interstitial lung
disease, and sleep problems.
After completing a university medical faculty course and
a 5-year specialist training program in Pediatric Health and Diseases, our
Pediatric Chest Diseases specialists continued further specialist programs in
pediatric chest diseases for at least three years, before passing exams to qualify
as specialists in Pediatric Pulmonology.
For the accurate diagnosis and treatment of children, it
is essential that tests and examinations are carried out by qualified experts.
Radiology is very important in the diagnosis of pediatric
chest diseases. Our hospital’s excellence in the field is attributable to
having the most advanced technology in radiology equipment and highly
experienced specialists to interpret test X-rays and images.
