Advanced medicine to help you breathe easier


Pulmonology uses advanced medicine to help patients manage the challenges of living with lung disease. Our physicians are specialists who diagnose and treat common and complex pulmonary conditions of the lungs and the rest of the respiratory system.

What you should know about pulmonology

  • The respiratory system is made up of the organs that help you breathe: the airway, the lungs and the respiratory muscles.
  • Pulmonologists handle several types of respiratory disorders, including infectious, structural, inflammatory and neoplastic (tumor-based) conditions.
  • Other common pulmonology areas include lung transplantation, obstructive lung disease, sleep disordered breathing, interstitial lung disease and pulmonary vascular disease (pulmonary hypertension and pulmonary embolism).
  • Pulmonologists typically treat asthma, bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, emphysema and obstructive sleep apnea.
