David Feller-Kopman, M.D., FCCP
Director, Interventional Pulmonology
Associate Professor of Medicine

Dr. Feller-Kopman received his MD, with distinction, from The George Washington University School of Medicine and conducted his internship and residency at Beth Israel Hospital in Boston, MA.  He was Chief Resident at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, and was a clinical and research fellow in the Combined Harvard Program in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.  He then went on to receive formal training in Interventional Pulmonology at BIDMC and has since been one of two interventional pulmonologists at one of the foremost programs in the country.  He has lectured extensively throughout the country, has published numerous manuscripts, book chapters and is considered a national leader in the field of Interventional Pulmonology.

Dr. Feller-Kopman has recently been recruited by Johns Hopkins Hospital to start a program in Interventional Pulmonology.  His clinical and research interests lie in the care of patients with central airway obstruction from both non-malignant and malignant disease, advanced diagnostic bronchoscopic procedures such as electromagnetic navigational bronchoscopy for solitary pulmonary nodules and endobronchial ultrasound guided transbronchial needle aspiration of mediastinal / hilar lymph nodes, as well as the care of patients with malignant pleural effusions.

Lonny Yarmus, D.O., FCCP
Interventional Pulmonology
Instructor of Medicine

Dr. Yarmus received his medical training from The University of New England and conducted his internship and residency at Maine Medical Center in Portland, ME.  He was a clinical and research fellow at the Tufts University program in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at Maine Medical Center.  He then went on to receive formal training in Interventional Pulmonology at The Johns Hopkins Hospital.  He has published numerous manuscripts and book chapters in the field of Interventional Pulmonology.

After completing his formal training in Interventional Pulmonology, Dr Yarmus has recently been recruited by The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Interventional Pulmonology at one of the foremost programs in the country.    His clinical and research interests lie in advanced diagnostic bronchoscopic procedures such as endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) guided transbronchial needle aspiration of mediastinal / hilar lymph nodes for the diagnosis of lung cancer, airway stenosis in the lung transplant patient,  the care of patients with central airway obstruction from both non-malignant and malignant disease and the long term management of patients with malignant pleural effusions.
