The Lung Center
Conditions we treat include:
Asthma is a condition in which a person’s airways become inflamed and narrow, producing extra mucus and making it difficult to breathe.
Bronchiectasis is a condition in which the lungs’ airways become damaged, making it difficult to clear mucus.
Chronic respiratory failure
Chronic respiratory failure typically occurs when the airways that carry air to the lungs become damaged, causing the respiratory system to be unable to remove enough carbon dioxide from the blood.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a chronic inflammatory lung disease causing obstructed airflow from the lungs.
Co-management of lung cancer
Specialists at The Lung Center will work closely with your oncologists to provide you with the best possible care.
Interstitial lung disease
Interstitial lung disease is a group of disorders causing progressive scarring of lung tissue.
Lung Cancer screening
The U.S. Preventative Services Task Force recommends annual screening for lung cancer with low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) in adults aged 55 to 80 years who have a 30 pack-year smoking history and currently smoke or have quit within the past 15 years.
Pleural effusion is a buildup of fluid between the tissues that line the lungs and the chest.
Pulmonary embolism is a condition in which one or more arteries in the lungs become blocked by a blood clot.
Pulmonary fibrosis is a chronic and progressive lung disease in which the air sacs in the lungs becomes scarred and stiff, making it difficult to get enough oxygen into the bloodstream.
Pulmonary hypertension is a type of high blood pressure affecting the arteries in the lungs and in the heart.
Sleep disorders, including sleep apnea
Sleep disorders occur when there are changes in sleeping patterns or habits that can negatively affect health. Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts.
