Pulmonary & Respiratory Care

At UVA, four of our specialties were honored as “high performing” by U.S. News & World Report, including our pulmonary services, which places them among the top 10% in the nation.

More than 35 million Americas suffer from chronic lung diseases, the third-leading cause of death in the United States behind heart disease and cancer. And the number of deaths from lung disease are increasing, while death rates from heart disease and cancer are declining.

We're experts in diagnosing and treating chronic pulmonary and respiratory conditions, from asthma to lung cancer to sleep disorders.

Conditions We Treat
Lung Specialties

Cystic Fibrosis

Our Cystic Fibrosis Clinic is one of 110 in the nation to be accredited by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, meaning we meet the highest standards for treatment of cystic fibrosis in adults.

Pulmonary Fibrosis 

We have one of only 45 centers in the country designated as a Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation Care Center, treating complex lung diseases like sarcoidosis and pulmonary fibrosis.

Pulmonary Hypertension

We work with experts in rheumatology or cardiology to diagnose, treat and find the underlying cause of your pulmonary hypertension.

Bronchiectasis: A Rare, Challenging Disease

Unlike other chronic respiratory conditions, bronchiectasis requires a very individualized treatment plan. Primary care and pulmonary doctors send their patients to us because they know we have the resources, therapies and experience to provide the necessary care.

We see patients with all forms of the disease, including those with and without cystic fibrosis. We also treat primary ciliary dyskinesia, a genetic disorder that occurs with bronchiectasis. Our goal is to decrease complications and improve your quality of life.
