Pulmonology

​​Pulmonologists specialize in diseases of the lungs and bronchial tubes. In many cases, these conditions also involve the upper respiratory tract and heart. Among the diseases pulmonologists treat are pneumonia, asthma, tuberculosis, emphysema, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and complicated chest infections. Pulmonologists work to keep airways open and diagnose diseases using specialized tests and imaging studies.

Lung Cancer 

Pulmonologists collaborate with oncologists in the care of lung cancer patients. Learn more about your risk for lung cancer​ or make an appointment for a lung cancer screening.
