"We are seeing too many cases of lung cancer that could have been prevented if patients would quit using tobacco," says Dr. Carmel Joseph, pulmonologist at Doctors Hospital.
It's not easy, but if you start small and ask for help then the path to quitting will be much easier," says Dr. Joseph.

Lack of Sleep Raises Stroke Risk, 19 Feb 2012 [cached]
While the latest findings sound alarming, one shouldn't panic over getting less than six hours of sleep a night, particularly if it is a temporary situation and the sleep can be made up at other times during the day or over the weekend, said Dr. Carmel Joseph, medical director of the Doctors sleep center.
Still, he said, it's best to get more than six hours.
Technology Guides Better Lung Biopsy, 3-D Imaging Reduces Failures - Doctors Hospital of Augusta | Augusta, GA, 22 Feb 2014 [cached]
Often when a patient has a spot or shadow on a lung scan it isn't clear what it is, said pulmonologist Carmel Joseph, who did Bissell's biopsy at Doctors.
"Probably 80 percent of the time we cannot tell just by looking at the spot whether it is a malignancy or not," he said.
Physicians use the patient's risk factors - whether they were smokers or had any family history of cancer - to help determine the urgency of dealing with it. If the patient is healthy - like Bissell, a nonsmoker with no family history who stays active - and the spot is small, they might be told to get a scan in a few months to see if it has changed, Joseph said.
Under the old system, "we're basically hedging that it won't change and, if it changes in size, we then send a surgeon to take it out," he said. "Surgeons were cutting away, in the '80s and '90s.
Where Bissell's spot sat could only be reached through surgery, Joseph said.
But thanks to a technique called Electromagnetic Navigation Bronchoscopy, Joseph can be guided down to a tricky spot and hit a 3-dimensional target. A lung CT scan is loaded into a program that then builds a 3-D model of Bissell's lungs, allowing Joseph to do a virtual bronchoscopy, guiding to where the most suspicious spot lies.
"I've got to make this turn to get into it," Joseph said. "All you have to do is miss it by a few millimeters and you've got a negative biopsy. We just changed the whole game with this. Joseph could then see the pathway and the imagery as a guide as he went in to do the actual biopsy.
“Super†Technology Provides Hope After a Grim Diagnosis - Doctors Hospital of Augusta | Augusta, GA [cached]
His family was devastated and they were ready to discuss treatment options when pulmonologist, Dr. Carmel Joseph, suggested using the superDimension i-Logic™ System, sometimes referred to as "Super D," to confirm Mr. Bissell's diagnosis.
Dr. Joseph had good news for the Bissell family. William was lung cancer free and his prognosis was excellent. As William puts it, "Super D gave me my life back that day. My family's entire outlook for the future changed. What more can be asked for?"
Dr. Carmel Joseph is encouraged by the outlook Super D offers. He states, "This is an exciting technology.
