Respiratory Education and Support
Asthma involves spasms of the bronchi in the lungs, which makes breathing difficult. Asthma is one of the most common respiratory conditions we treat. We treat asthma in adults, teens and children. Asthma is the most common long-term childhood disease and can be frightening for both kids and their caregivers.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a condition that makes breathing progressively more difficult over time.
Thoracic surgery is surgery on your chest cavity. This can include the lungs, ribs, diaphragm, structures around the heart (not the heart), the upper spine and surrounding organs.
Thoracic surgery may be a recommended treatment for some chest or lung conditions. Learn what to expect if you are scheduled for surgery.
