Lung Care

Our lungs help us breathe so that our body can properly function. Illness or disease in the airways, lung tissue, cardiovascular system or from neurological or muscular conditions, limits the amount of air that reaches the lungs.

Pulmonologists on our medical staff study and treat diseases of the lungs, airways and chest, care for the very sick in critical care units, as well as treat sleep disorders. If surgery is required, we have physicians on the medical staff specially trained in thoracic surgery.
