Pediatric Pulmonology

Our world-class, board-certified pediatric pulmonologists diagnose and treat infants and children with diseases of the lungs and the respiratory system.

With our focus on child-friendly care, children with infections or chronic breathing problems are able to participate in and maximize the benefits of their treatments.

Our pediatric pulmonology department helps your child breathe easier by treating conditions such as:

  • Breathing difficulties
  • Chronic cough
  • Chronic lung disease in premature infants
  • Noisy breathing
  • Asthma
  • Sleep disorders/apnea
  • Cystic fibrosis, including patients requiring lung transplantation

Research

Pediatric pulmonary diseases research is ongoing. If a pediatric pulmonologist from our team feels your child would benefit from enrollment in a clinical trial, you will be fully informed of all treatment options before you are asked to make a decision about participation.

The cystic fibrosis program, in particular, participates in multi-center clinical trials under the auspices of the Therapeutic Development Network of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. This enables us to recruit patients to participate in ongoing research towards more effective interventions and eventually the cure for cystic fibrosis.

In addition to research in cystic fibrosis, we also conduct research in the fields of sleep-disordered breathing and asthma as part of various grants or in collaboration with other departments, including the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.
