Pulmonary Diseases Overview
Our pulmonologists are experts in the field of pulmonary disease. Pulmonary disease is defined as any problem that is found in the lungs that prevents the lungs from working properly. Lung disease can be diagnosed and treated through our physicians. They are able to diagnose and treat diseases such as: asthma, bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cystic fibrosis, dyspnea, emphysema, lung disease, lung cancer, pleural effusion, pleurisy, pneumonia, pulmonary edema, pulmonary fibrosis, pulmonary hypertension, sarcoidosis, sleep apnea, and tuberculosis. Receiving annual check ups is important for your lung health. When a pulmonary disease is diagnosed early, then treatment will have a higher chance of being successful. Diagnosis can be completed through a variety of tests, including: a pulmonary function test, chest x-rays, electrocardiograms, and stress tests.
