Our Services

Xolair Injection
Dr. Theodoris and Dr. Glaser, specialize in treating asthma with Xolair injections. Xolair is an antibody that interferes with allergic inflammation of asthma.  As a result, airway swelling in the lung is decreased and airflow improves.  The lungs also benefit long-term by becoming less “hyper responsive” to allergens.  Thus, Xolair decreases the incidence and severity of asthma attacks, and may also improve lung function over time.

Bronchoscopy is an operative technique of visualizing the inside of the airways (bronchi and trachea) for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. This procedure is performed in the operating room under conscious sedation administered by an anesthesiologist and normally occurs on an ambulatory (same-day) basis.
