PulmonX Zephyr Valve: Breathing Easier with New Advancements in COPD

Location: Online Event

Indianapolis, IN 46237

Franciscan Health is one of the few hospitals in Indiana to offer a new minimally invasive treatment for emphysema, a severe form of COPD. The Zephyr Valve is placed in the airways to block off the damaged areas of the lung. Air is no longer trapped, allowing the healthier parts of the lungs to expand so breathing is easier.

Virtual Seminar

Join us to learn how a one-time minimally invasive bronchoscopy procedure could improve the quality of your life with less shortness of breath and more energy.

  • What is COPD and emphysema?
  • Who is eligible for the Zephyr Valve?
  • What results can be expected from the procedure?
  • What does the recovery look like?
  • Why choose Franciscan Health for my treatment?

  • Abby Ertel, RN, MSN, NP, Pulmonology Nurse Practitioner
  • Faisal Khan, MD, Interventional Pulmonology, Respiratory and Pulmonary Rehabilitation Medical Director
