Pulmonology is the area of medicine which focuses on the respiratory system. Asthma, chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD), emphysema and lung cancer are just a few diseases that can hinder your day to day life. Your pulmonologist can assist in diagnosis and treatment of these conditions.

UNCPN’s pulmonologists provide excellent care throughout our specialty clinics. Our goal is to relieve the stress and pain that respiratory disease may cause.
