Pulmonary care

Pulmonary care provides treatment for lung and respiratory conditions, including asthma, bronchitis, certain allergies and chest wall conditions.

Advanced lung and respiratory care

Struggling to breathe affects every aspect of your life, but we work to offer you relief.

At Mission Health, our compassionate lung surgeons and specialists treat pulmonary diseases with high-quality care. They provide services such as screenings, thoracic surgery and transplants.

Lung conditions we treat

Our family of hospitals specializes in advanced care for lung and respiratory diseases, such as:

  • Asthma
  • Bronchiectasis
  • Chronic bronchitis
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Emphysema
  • Lung cancer

Our pulmonology programs

We provide cutting-edge treatments — including medical and surgical procedures — for lung and respiratory disorders.

Diagnostic pulmonary exams

Tailoring a treatment plan to your condition begins with evaluating your symptoms and getting a clear picture of your lung's anatomy. To do that, our doctors may order laboratory tests such as:

  • Arterial blood gas tests
  • Computerized tomography (CT) scans
  • Lung cancer screenings
  • Spirometry
  • X-ray exams

Treatments we offer for lung and respiratory disorders

Pulmonary disease treatments vary based on the type and severity of your disorder. Whenever possible, we opt for nonsurgical methods, such as lifestyle changes, oxygen therapy and medication. If surgery is required, we choose the least invasive thoracic surgery method possible.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) management

COPD affects millions of Americans by making it harder to get air in and out of the lungs. Our COPD management program, based at Mission Hospital, helps you fully understand and manage your condition. In our program, a pulmonary rehabilitation specialist conducts an evaluation and introduces a comprehensive self-care plan designed just for you. Your COPD care team — pulmonologists, oncologists, physical and respiratory therapists, registered nurses, dietitians, psychologists, and exercise specialists — provide a range of services, including:

  • Bronchial hygiene
  • Exercise programs
  • Family and community resource education
  • Lung transplant, including education, preparation and post-operative care
  • Lung volume reduction surgery for emphysema
  • Nutritional and psychosocial counseling
  • Smoking cessation programs
  • Training in breathing techniques

Pediatric pulmonary care

Our pediatric lung care program is called the Regional Asthma Disease Management Program. It focuses on treating children's asthma and is offered at Mission Children's Hospital (which is located in Mission Hospital). This program aims to help manage your child's asthma in a non-disruptive way, delivering care in familiar settings, such as their homes, childcare centers, schools and community sites. This also ensures they have access to services where they are needed most.
