      Collapse Overview
      Dr.Krishna graduated from Stanford University Pulmonary/Critical care medicine fellowship program and subsequently served as a faculty at Stanford for eight years. He underwent additional training in Germany for Interventional Pulmonology. He joined the faculty at UCSF in 2014 to start the Interventional Pulmonary program. He is interested in bronchology training for fellows, advanced bronchology and Interventional Pulmonology, thoracic ultrasound and critical care. He is at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation and is the program director for the UCSF/PAMF Interventional Pulmonary program at El Camino Hospital.

      Dr.Krishna is interested in clinical research related to devices and interventional pulmonology. Current research projects include endoscopic lung volume reduction, confocal endomicroscopy for evaluation of small lung nodules, transbronchial cryobiopsy for interstitial lung diseases and therapeutic applications of navigational bronchoscopy.
