dr Hasnain Bawaadam, medical director of the Department of Pulmonology, Respiratory Services and Critical Care at Aurora Medical Center in Kenosha, cares for critically ill patients in the intensive care unit while working in the pulmonary intervention unit, where he specializes in advanced robotic bronchoscopy.

“DR. Bawaadam is an innovator passionate about finding new best practices in the field of pulmonary medicine. He recently developed a method that helps surgeons find the tiniest nodules by examining them with a green dye-prepared reference coil that is placed at the time of biopsy,” said Annette Guye-Kordus, public affairs coordinator for southern Wisconsin at Advocate Health.

He shares this process with colleagues through professional conferences and published articles.

Bawaadam completed fellowships in pulmonary medicine at Chicago Medical School at Rosalind Franklin University, where he is currently an associate professor of medicine. He completed fellowships in interventional pulmonology at the University of California San Francisco and in critical care medicine at the St. Louis University School of Medicine.
