Lungs, Breathing and Sleep

Pulmonary Care

Lung disorders and diseases are some of the most common medical conditions in the world and can affect almost every part of a person’s respiratory system.

Our pulmonologists (lung care specialists) and sleep medicine specialists provide expert, well-coordinated, team-based care to ensure that each patient receives the right care from the right expert at the right time.

Our pulmonology team, consistently recognized as one of the best in the nation, treats a variety of conditions including:

  • Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency
  • Asthma
  • Acute and chronic bronchitis
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and emphysema
  • Cystic fibrosis 
  • Lung cancer 
  • Lung failure
  • Occupational lung diseases
  • Pulmonary arterial hypertension
  • Pulmonary fibrosis 
  • Sarcoidosis 
  • Sleep apnea (and other sleep problems)
  • Tuberculosis
  • While many forms of lung disease can be successfully managed with treatments and medications, some advanced lung diseases may require a lung transplant.

Lung Testing and Treatment

The sooner a patient seeks care for lung disease, the better. Signs that indicate treatment is necessary include:

  • Bronchial thermoplasty
  • Bronchoscopy
  • Lobectomy (lung surgery)
  • Lung transplant
  • Lung volume reduction surgery
  • Minimally invasive surgery for lung conditions
  • Pleural biopsy
  • Pulmonary function tests
  • Sleep studies
