Dr. Kyle Hogarth is an expert in pulmonary diseases -- including alpha-1 antitrypsin (AAT) deficiency. He is also involved with the minimally invasive diagnosis, management, and staging of lung cancer through bronchoscopy. Dr. Hogarth was one of the first doctors in Illinois to work with the superDimension system -- an electromagnetic navigation system that uses 3-D imaging technology to detect and biopsy nodules and masses. He uses endobronchial ultrasound to biopsy lymph nodes, place stents in cancerous airways, and perform all other minimally invasive techniques to help patients with lung cancer. He sees patients in clinic on Fridays.
Dr. Hogarth was the first physician in Illinois to perform bronchial thermoplasty, a new FDA-approved technique to treat severe asthma. He has done the most cases in Illinois.
Dr. Hogarth's research focuses on improving quality of life and outcomes for patients with AAT deficiency and lung cancer. He is an investigator in numerous clinical trials for these diseases.
In 2011 and 2007, he received the Department of Medicine’s Outstanding Junior Faculty Clinical Service Award.
