Pulmonology (Lung Disease)


Pediatric Pulmonology
Pediatric pulmonology is a field of medicine that deals with diseases of the lungs and respiratory tract in babies, children and adolescents. Common conditions treated include asthma, pneumonia, wheezing and bronchitis. Pediatric pulmonologists provide in-patient or outpatient consultation and follow-up through a multidisciplinary approach to a child's respiratory problems. Pulmonary specialists work closely with the child's pediatrician and other sub-specialists as indicated.


Pediatric pulmonologists at the Division of Pediatric Pulmonology at Cohen Children’s Medical Center have the experience and qualifications to expertly diagnose, evaluate and treat children, from infants to adolescents up to age 21 who suffer from a variety of breathing and lung problems. Among the breathing disorders, we treat recurrent and chronic cough and wheezing, breathing problems in sleep, and recurrent pneumonia. We also treat cystic fibrosis, apnea, chronic lung disease in premature infants, noisy breathing and conditions that require special equipment to monitor and/or help with breathing at home.

Our board-certified pediatric pulmonologists have extensive training and experience in managing the treatment of children with pulmonary problems. Our multidisciplinary team includes pediatric sub-specialists, the child’s pediatrician, pediatric clinical nurse specialists and nurse clinicians to ensure the most comprehensive evaluations and effective treatments…to help children--and their parents--breathe easier.

The health care professionals on our Pediatric Pulmonology staff have all been chosen for their care and compassion for children, as well as their skills and experience. In addition, our pediatric pulmonologists reach out with their involvement in research and the education of residents and medical students.
