Respiratory Services and Treatments

Respiratory issues affect your ability to breathe and can make daily life difficult. Our pulmonary specialists treat chronic breathing conditions and lung diseases while our thoracic doctors can provide emergency care so you can breathe more easily.

How we treat respiratory conditions

Our doctors and nurses use a variety of medications, therapies and other treatments to help manage your respiratory health. Some of these include:

  • Inhaled medication therapies, like corticosteroids for asthma or COPD management
  • Oxygen therapy
  • Mechanical ventilation therapy, or machines that breathe for patients who are unable to breathe on their own
  • Thoracic (lung or chest) surgery
  • Pulmonary rehabilitation
  • VATS (video-assisted thoracic surgery)
