About “DR. JANSO KOLLANUR”
Dr. Janso Kollanur is an experienced Interventional Pulmonologist practising out of Thrissur, Kerala. Pulmonology is a branch of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the respiratory system. Thus, pulmonologists like Dr. Janso are sought after for treatment of breathing-related ailments and associated conditions like asthma and tuberculosis (TB). An actively involved medical practitioner, he is popular for treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Some of the common cases he is approached for include bronchiectasis (a condition where the bronchial tubes are permanently damaged, widened, and thickened, which allows bacteria and mucus to collect in lungs resulting in frequent infections), pneumonia, bronchitis, asphyxia (oxygen deprivation due to obstruction of breathing passageway), wheezing and sleep apnea (sleep disorder where breathing starts and stops repeatedly).
Dr. Janso is especially interested in and studies patients with sleep or breathing disorders such as obstructive sleep apnea. For patients in whom snoring, disturbed sleep, excessive sleepiness that cannot be attributed to any reason, etc. are observed, sleep studies are conducted wherein patients undergo polysomnography – a multi-parameter test to record oxygen levels, breathing, eye and leg movements during sleep. Once completed, there are several treatment measures including non-invasive techniques and surgical approaches that Dr. Janso may recommend based on the patient’s stage and health condition. He is also available for advice and guidance regarding long-term respiratory complications arising as secondary illnesses due to other diseases, occupation, lifestyle, etc.
