Pediatric Pulmonology

Pediatric pulmonologists care for infants, children and teenagers with lung conditions, breathing problems and sleep disorders. Physicians are board certified in both pediatrics and pediatric pulmonology.

Conditions We Treat

Our specialists treat children with numerous conditions that can affect their breathing. They use various diagnostic tools, including flexible fiberoptic bronchoscopy (a procedure that allows physicians to examine the respiratory system, including the larynx, trachea and airways) and pulmonary function tests, or PFTs (a battery of noninvasive tests that help determine how well the lungs are working). Our pediatric pulmonologists’ areas of expertise include:

  • Asthma
  • Chronic lung disease
  • Difficulty breathing, noisy breathing
  • Recurrent pneumonia
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Chronic cough
  • Respiratory insufficiency
  • Wheezing
  • Neuromuscular respiratory disorders
  • Bronchopulmonary dysplasia
  • Conditions that require equipment to assist with or monitor breathing
  • Snoring and sleep apnea
  • Chronic bronchitis
  • Sleepwalking
  • Exercise-induced shortness of breath

Why We Are Different

Our board-certified pediatric pulmonologists are highly experienced in working with young patients, and have the bedside manner and expertise to put children at ease. They use state-of-the-art diagnostic tools, and can perform many necessary tests in office. Physicians also ensure that parents and caregivers fully understand their children’s diagnosis and treatment plan, so that they can be successful partners in care.
