Primary care for you and your family, close to home.
Pulmonary medicine cares for people with diseases and conditions of the lungs and related sleep disorders.
Wellstar’s pulmonologists help people with conditions of the lungs to manage their health to live and breathe better. Patients often see a pulmonologist when conventional approaches at managing these illnesses don’t work, or when their case is more complicated.
Some common conditions our pulmonologists diagnose and treat include COPD, asthma, pneumonia, the buildup of fluid in the lungs and lung cancer.
Our pulmonary medicine specialists typically work as part of a team of specialists to care for patients, collaborating with primary care physicians, surgeons and therapists. They have access to the latest and most innovative technology for diagnostics and treatment, which can range from medicine and therapy to minimally invasive procedures or open chest surgery.
