Lung Center

For Physicians

At the Temple Lung Center, we offer 2 FDA-approved endobronchial valves for performing bronchoscopic lung volume reduction — the Zephyr® valve and the Spiration® valve. Both valves have been proven effective for patients with severe emphysema. Additional devices are currently being tested as part of clinical trials.
