These departments also offer support for smoking cessation with scientific approaches. A multidisciplinary approach is very important in Pulmonology. For this reason, specialist physicians in this field work together with specialist physicians in other branches and create the most accurate treatment planning by exchanging opinions and consulting when necessary.
