Pulmonary Medicine at Penn Highlands

Pulmonary medicine is the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diseases affecting the lungs. When breathing becomes difficult due to respiratory infection or a chronic condition, Penn Highlands Healthcare has qualified professionals who can test, diagnose and treat all types of pulmonary issues. Pulmonary medicine is also sometimes called pulmonology which is the science concerned with the anatomy, physiology and pathology of the lungs.

Penn Highlands Healthcare provides services to patients with chronic pulmonary disease, lung or breathing issues. Many pulmonary medicine physicians also have studied and treat sleep disorders related to breathing difficulties and are part of the sleep medicine team.
