Helping kids breathe better
Pediatric respiratory diseases come in many forms, from asthma and allergies to chronic lung disease. No matter what the cause—when children have breathing problems, they need highly specialized treatment.
We provide expertise and a wide range of clinical services to effectively address respiratory disease in infants, children, and young adults.
Our pediatric pulmonary specialists offer superior, family-centered care for young patients with chronic respiratory conditions including:
- Bronchopulmonary dysplasia
- Congenital lung and airway abnormalities
- Neuromuscular disorders
- Lung disease
- Oxygen and ventilator dependency
- Respiratory infections
- Sleep apnea
Tests and Treatments
Leading-edge diagnostics include pulmonary function testing, spirometry, exercise and cold air challenges, and allergy testing. Some of the specific tests and treatments we offer:
- Pulmonary function testing
- Respiratory support technology
- Tracheostomy and airway management
Caring for children with breathing disorders is different from treating the same conditions in adults. Treatments need to be designed to provide the best care for young and growing bodies. Our pulmonologists and respiratory therapists provide medical management, planning treatments that maximize lung function and slow the pace of any lung deterioration.
Some respiratory challenges are caused by disabilities and other underlying conditions such muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, and spinal cord injuries. Our pediatric pulmonologists understand the unique needs of children with disabilities and provide collaborative care for children with complex needs, often collaborating with specialists in:
