Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Manu Rangar at Spire include:
After completing my undergraduate training in London I returned to my native Durham and worked in some major hospitals in the North East, including Sunderland and Newcastle Hospitals. I have gained extensive experience in all types of chest diseases. I am proficient in interventional bronchoscopy, endobronchial ultrasound and all types of pleural procedures including medical thoracoscopy. I have undertaken translational research in infection specific to patients with lung transplants.
I have a specialist interest in asthma, in particular occupational asthma and industrial lung injuries. Having been brought up in a old colliery town in County Durham, I have seen the direct consequences and morbidity associated with industrial lung injury.
I specialise in all aspects of chest diseases, including allergy, asthma, COPD, occupational and industrial lung injuries, all types of fibrosis (scarring of the lungs), sleep and ventilation problems.

I play 5 a side football and tennis every week, and I love watching sport and supporting my local football and rugby teams. I am passionate about keeping fit and most weekends are dominated by playing sport. Having been brought up locally, I feel blessed to live in the north east as there's so much beautiful countryside and for that reason I wouldn't want to live anywhere else!Back to top
