At Piedmont, the discipline of pulmonary medicine encompasses the evaluation and management of a wide variety of common clinical symptoms, such as chronic cough, wheezing, and shortness of breath. We also manage many chronic health conditions, including asthma, emphysema, chronic bronchitis, infectious lung diseases (e.g. tuberculosis), and lung cancers as well as rarer disorders, such as interstitial lung diseases (e.g. sarcoidosis and pulmonary fibrosis), pulmonary hypertension, and pleural diseases (conditions involving the lining of the lung).
Our physicians, advanced practice providers, nurses, and respiratory therapists work collaboratively to develop long-term treatment programs and to respond to acute respiratory crises. So whether it's developing a strategy to deal with a life-long condition like asthma or responding to a patient in acute respiratory failure, our team is there to help everyone breathe a little easier.
