Bronchiectasis
What is Bronchiectasis?
Bronchiectasis is a disease that dilates the bronchial tree of a person's lungs in a way that cannot be reversed. A patient's airflow is obstructed, and it is often difficult to clear secretions. Is the cause genetic? Has it been acquired?

Dr. Garg will examine you and take a detailed medical history, which will help him determine what other testing may be necessary in order to diagnose your condition.

How is Bronchiectasis treated?
Dr. Garg may prescribe antibiotics for an extended period of time. Inhalers may be prescribed, and surgery may also be an option. If you smoke, you will be urged to stop.

Conclusion
Make an appointment with Dr. Garg so he can help you find out a) if you have Bronchiectasis and b) what you can do to combat its effect.
