Overview

  • Dr Manjunath B G is one of the very few superspecialist pulmonologist and Interventional Pulmonologist in Varthur Road Bangalore, who has done his DM in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine from a very prestigious institution under the pioneer of Pulmonology and Critical Care Medicine Dr Dhruva Chaudhry.

  • He has an experience of 12 years in the field of pulmonology. His expertise is in dealing with all kinds of respiratory diseases, Sleep Disordered Breathing conditions and Critical Illnesses.

  • He is well versed with diagnosis and treatment of chest diseases like Respiratory Allergies like Bronchial Asthma & ABPA, Chronic obstructive airway disease (COPD), Bronchiectasis, Respiratory Infections (including Tuberculosis, Fungal infections & Atypical Infections), DPLD (ILD), Sarcoidosis, Lung Cancer, Mediastinal Diseases, Pleural Diseases (pleural effusion, empyema, hydropneumothorax, etc), Pulmonary Vascular Diseases (Pulmonary hypertension, pulmonary embolism, vasculitis, etc), Occupational Diseases involving respiratory system.

  • Dr. Manjunath B G is a sleep medicine expert in Varthur Road Bangalore, who is proficient in managing acute conditions of respiratory system like acute respiratory failure due to various causes like exacerbation of COPD/ILD/neuromuscular weakness, cardiac failure, foreign body aspiration, pneumothorax, etc. He is also very well experienced in treatment of chronic respiratory failure at home with oxygen therapy, home NIV with or without tracheostomy tube.

  • He is well experienced in performing procedures like Flexible bronchoscopy, Rigid bronchoscopy, Medical Thoracoscopy and EBUS. Through these he does sampling of respiratory system lesions like BAL, endobronchial biopsy, transbronchial biopsy, Transbronchial needle aspiration for diagnosis of cancers, infections & other pulmonary diseases. He also expertises in managing airway lesions like stenosis, external compression, intraluminal tumours & foreign body by electrosurgical knife/snare, APC, balloon dilatation, coring, cryo & stenting of airways.

  • His field of interest is in managing snoring, obstructive sleep apnea disorder(OSA) in which his research was honoured with young scientist award by European Respiratory Society in 2018.  He is a well experienced intensivist having knowledge and expertise in managing critically ill patients in ICUs.
