Dr. Bansal's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Bansal "Dr. Sandeep Bansal is board certified in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine. He has extensive training and experience in minimally invasive pulmonary procedures including electromagnetic navigational bronchoscopy, bronchial thermoplasty, thoracic ultrasound (endobrochial and chest sonography), argon plasma coagulation, cryotherapy, airway stenting and indwelling pleural catheters for recurrent and malignant pleural effusions. He has been instrumental in developing a comprehensive lung center in rural Central Western Pennsylvania that allows a rapid assessment and demand management of healthcare needs based on the population characteristics and available resources. The model has been very successful in increasing the availability of advanced pulmonary services including latest technology and population health services such as a robust lung cancer screening program to support the clinical needs in the region. Dr. Bansal is known for his excellent bedside manners, professional honesty and compassionate attitude towards his patients. He envisions a rapid growth in the field of interventional pulmonary medicine and molecular technology to address the considerable unmet clinical needs of the field especially around the early detection and treatment of lung cancer."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bansal "The health care industry is plagued by several issues today.  These include but are not limited to physician shortages, excessive unnecessary care and lack of transparency, all of which result in large amounts of money wasted in the health care field.  These problems can be amplified if you live and practice in rural areas and patients are required to spend several hours traveling to receive essential and basic care.  Patients can be lost in the shuffle of big city health care, which can sometimes result in negative outcomes and an overall stigma that quality healthcare is unattainable. 

Our highly skilled team uses the comprehensive lung care model to increase access to care, affordable screenings, subsequent treatments, access to advanced technology to bring quality health care to a large area of Central and Western Pennsylvania.  We believe in the fact that early adoption of innovative therapies for lung diseases coupled with personalized treatments can save lives, improve quality of life and potentially reduce the health care expenditure.

Every patient deserves the best quality of care.  Care that is affordable, patient centered, individualized and built on evidence based medicine, innovation and leadership in the healthcare and technology field."
