Allergy & Immunology
Our allergy and immunology services help you manage disorders ranging from common allergies to rare immunodeficiencies. When other parts of the body are affected by your condition, we work alongside other specialists to give you the complete care you need.
For patients who are unsure of their diagnosis, seeking general respiratory care is an important first step. Our lung specialists will listen as you explain your symptoms, perform tests that provide answers and coordinate the care you need to improve your health.
Interstitial Lung Disease
Interstitial lung disease (ILD) is a term for various conditions that inflame and scar important lung tissue around the air sacs, making it hard for your body to take in oxygen. As the only academic medical center in the region with an ILD program, we provide a personalized treatment plan so you can breathe better and enjoy a better quality of life.
If you are diagnosed with lung cancer or suffer from another central airway disorder, we can provide the care needed to fight your condition. Our team also works closely with the Cancer Center to provide comprehensive care for those diagnosed with cancer. If you are in a risk category, we partner with you to intervene before a more dangerous condition develops.
Nontuberculous Mycobacteria (NTM) & Bronchiectasis
With an NTM lung infection or dilated airways (bronchiectasis), irritating inflammation can lead to serious lung damage. To help prevent this, we teach you airway clearance techniques to move the mucus out of your small airways, provide relief and improve wellness.
Obstructive Airway Diseases
We’re the region’s leader in novel treatment approaches for managing asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). If you are living with either of these obstructive airway diseases, the ongoing care we provide can help you live the healthiest life possible.
Our pulmonary hypertension (PH) program provides a comprehensive team of experts who partner with you on your treatment journey. Though PH cannot be cured, we provide treatments that can dramatically improve your quality of life and reduce your risk of serious complications.
If you need help for a sleep disorder, you can find hope for more productive days and restful nights. We treat insomnia, sleep apnea, snoring, narcolepsy, sleepwalking, restless leg syndrome and hypersomnia.
