Profile

Ashish P. Maskey joins UK HealthCare as a specialist in pulmonology, critical care medicine and interventional pulmonology, a relatively new and upcoming field. He also serves as an assistant professor of internal medicine at the UK College of Medicine.

He completed a residency in internal medicine at SUNY Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, N.Y., followed by a fellowship in pulmonology and critical care at the Cleveland Clinic. Maskey then received an additional year of training in interventional pulmonology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, a teaching hospital for Harvard Medical School in Boston.

Maskey uses minimally invasive techniques such as endobronchial ultrasound and electromagnetic navigation bronchoscopy to aid in the diagnosis of lung nodules and staging of lung cancer. He also performs rigid bronchoscopy, laser, electrocautery, argon and cryotherapy for airway narrowing/obstruction. He manages pleural diseases and performs Denver drains, pleurodesis and medical thoracoscopy. Maskey also manages tracheotomy tubes.

Maskey works closely with a team of oncologists, radiation oncologists and thoracic surgeons at UK HealthCare.
