Lung conditions such as COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), asthma, emphysema, and lung cancer can cause breathing problems. If you experience shortness of breath, wheezing, or something more serious, turn to the pulmonary experts at The Lung Center at Penn Highlands Healthcare with seven pulmonary clinics throughout Central Pennsylvania.

Breathing problems can severely limit your quality of life. Whether you are dealing with COPD or your child struggles with asthma, it’s vital that you get an early diagnosis and comprehensive treatment plan that will help you manage your disease and even stop progression. Our pulmonary care team includes pulmonologists, surgeons, respiratory therapists, nutritionists, and many other clinicians who form a team to provide you with this care.

Breathing problems are treated in a variety of ways depending on their cause and severity, as well as the patient’s age and general health condition. Most common respiratory problems, like asthma and COPD, can be treated with medication management and patient education on how to avoid triggers, control breathing, and monitor symptoms. Some more severe pulmonary diseases, such as emphysema and lung cancer, may need more intensive treatment, including surgery and pulmonary rehabilitation.

We provide a wide variety of diagnostic tests and treatments for all types of breathing problems. In addition, we provide many innovative procedures including:
