The RWJBarnabas Health Advanced Lung Diseases and Transplant Program at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center (NBIMC) offers increased access to single and double lung transplant and comprehensive treatment and management of chronic and complex lung disease.

State-of-the-art diagnostic services include:

  • CT-guided biopsy
  • Navigational bronchoscopy and endobronchial ultrasound
  • Bronchial thermoplasty
  • Endobronchial resection of tumors
  • Endobronchial stents
  • Pleurax catheter placement for malignant pleural effusions
  • Whole lung lavage

The Program offers complete evaluation and treatment plans for patients with lung diseases such as:

  • Asthma
  • Cystic Fibrosis
    Interstitial lung diseases
  • Alpha 1 antitrypsin deficiency
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
  • Pulmonary Fibrosis
  • Sarcoidosis
  • Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM)
  • Scleroderma
  • Pulmonary alveolar proteinosis
  • Pulmonary Hypertension

Support services such as pulmonary rehabilitation, pain management and smoking cessation are also available to patients. The Center has various ongoing cutting edge research trials helping patients with end-stage lung disease.
