Our pediatric pulmonologists diagnose and treat several issues related to breathing and sleep. Their expertise lies in the general functioning of your child’s respiratory system. They treat approximately 5,000 patients annually, and work closely with allergists and immunologists to treat underlying problems that cause difficulty breathing including asthma, cystic fibrosis, neuromuscular conditions, and chronic lung disease associated with premature birth.
They also support families in managing tracheotomies and ventilators, and perform approximately 150 bronchoscopies each year.
