Helping You Breathe With Ease

Respiratory Diseases and Disorders (Pulmonary Medicine)

About Pulmonary Medicine

Pulmonary Medicine is a medical specialty focused on the respiratory system, including the lungs and the bronchial tubes. Many pulmonologists are also sleep medicine and critical care specialists.

Whatever is causing your breathing challenges, Lee Health's Pulmonary Medicine Program can provide you with information, support and advanced treatment options. We offer inpatient and outpatient services for children and adults with both short-term and chronic respiratory problems.

Our pulmonary specialists assess and treat a range of pulmonary conditions and sleep disorders, including hereditary conditions, infections, diseases, trauma, and complex respiratory issues.

Learning to Live with COPD

Helping Manage Chronic Breathing Problems

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is an ongoing lung disease that disrupts the airflow in and out of your lungs and reduces how well your lungs function. This condition makes it harder to breathe.

Lee Health offers a COPD program to help patients and their families better manage their condition and live more comfortably. A team of health care professionals, including physicians, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, nurses, dietitians and others, will provide you with the self-management tools necessary to control your disease.
