Northside Hospital's pulmonary team provides expert care to help keep your lungs healthy and working at their full capacity.
Your pulmonary system, sometimes called your respiratory system, includes all of the organs you need to breathe – from your nose to your windpipe (trachea) to your lungs.
The pulmonary team at Northside brings together experts in all aspects of respiration health. Depending on your individual needs, your team might include a pulmonologist, respiratory therapist, respiratory nurse, radiologist, pharmacist, and other nurses, technicians and clinical specialists. For any respiratory condition, they'll carefully evaluate your symptoms and understand your goals. Together, they’ll identify your diagnosis and work with you to determine the right treatment plan.
Northside's dedicated GI and Pulmonary Endoscopy Centers provide convenient locations for the diagnosis and treatment of any breathing disorder. Some of the most common include lung cancers, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), emphysema, chronic bronchitis and asthma.
Our Interventional Pulmonology Program offers advanced techniques for the early diagnosis and treatment of lung cancers and other diseases.
Our experience goes even deeper, to diagnose and treat rarer conditions such as pulmonary hypertension — also known as high blood pressure of the lungs. In fact, Northside was the first hospital in Georgia to earn national accreditation as a Pulmonary Hypertension Care Center (PHCC)in recognition of our expertise.
We're also committed to helping people develop healthier lifestyles through our Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program. Our comprehensive AACVPR-certified education and exercise program uses the leading methods to help improve lung capacity, manage pulmonary symptoms and deliver patient-focused support for a better quality of life.
At Northside, your pulmonologist has access to many advanced tests and therapies to help you achieve better lung function, including:
