Dr Roberts has developed expertise in many procedures used for diagnostic purposes and for treatment of lung diseases.

Fibreoptic bronchoscopy

He is able to offer fibreoptic bronchoscopy to private patients to examine the inner lining of the trachea, bronchi and some of the accessible smaller airways.

We use the latest technology available and ensure that the experience is as comfortable as possible. Dr Roberts recommends a sedative to help you relax that also erases your memories of the procedure.

“Many patients resting in the recovery room afterwards ask me when we are going to start… this procedure is nothing to worry about.”

Insertion of chest drains

Dr Roberts also puts chest drains in place, as required, to drain fluid from around the lungs, either after surgery or to treat symptoms.
