Lung Conditions

Expert Care for Your Lung Condition

A respiratory condition or lung disease diagnosis changes the lives of thousands of people in the United States every year. The University Health System pulmonary team provides advanced care and hope when you or someone you love have a condition that affects the ability to breathe and live as full and healthy a life as possible.

Our lung specialists — pulmonologists — treat adults and children for a variety of lung conditions, ranging from allergies to sleep disorders to more complex lung diseases that can lead to the need for a lung transplant.
