He is the director of the newly founded Interventional Pulmonology Program at Columbia. This is a unique division that collaborates with thoracic surgery, pulmonary medicine, oncology and several other subspecialties in clinical care and research.

Dr. Shaikh's clinical work focuses on performing minimally invasive bronchoscopy to provide our patients with effective diagnostic and therapeutic options for lung nodules, lung masses, and lung cancer. He has expertise in palliating benign and malignant airway obstruction as well as performing minimally invasive, single incision thoracoscopy. He has worked in a collaborative effort on developing Columbia's lung volume reduction program in order to provide patients with advanced treatment options in emphysema.
