Ashish P. Maskey, MD

Director, Bronchoscopy and Interventional Pulmonology


My name is Ashish P. Maskey; I join UK HealthCare as a specialist in pulmonology, critical care medicine and interventional pulmonology, a relatively new and upcoming field. I also serve as an assistant professor of internal medicine at the UK College of Medicine.

I 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. I 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.

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

I work closely with a team of oncologists, radiation oncologists and thoracic surgeons at UK HealthCare.
