Allergy & Immunology Clinic
Allergy and immunology involves the management of disorders related to the immune system. These conditions range from the very common to the very rare, spanning all ages and encompassing various organ systems.
Bronchial Thermoplasty is a non-invasive outpatient procedure. It is often performed under moderate sedation or light anesthesia and typically takes less than an hour to complete a treatment session. The procedure delivers energy to airway walls to precisely target and reduce the extra smooth airway muscle present in the airways. This allows your airways to stay open, resulting in easier breathing.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a preventable and treatable disease that makes it difficult to empty air out of the lungs.
NonTuberculous Mycobacteria (NTM) & Bronchiectasis Clinic
NonTuberculous Mycobacteria (NTM) are cousins of tuberculosis but do not cause disease in most individuals. Patients with NTM commonly also have bronchiectasis, in bronchiectasis the walls of the smaller airways are thickened from long-term inflammation and scarring.
