Center for Advanced Lung Diseases
The Center for Advanced Lung Diseases offers a comprehensive approach to diagnosing and treating complex, chronic and rare lung diseases. Our team includes nationally recognized experts in pulmonary and critical care medicine, thoracic surgery, pulmonary rehabilitation, cancer care, sleep medicine, transplant medicine, genetics, radiology, pathology, respiratory therapy, nursing and more. Together these specialists provide focused care for the full spectrum of diseases of the respiratory system, including asthma, lung cancer, interstitial lung diseases, cystic fibrosis, sleep apnea, Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), sarcoidosis and lung failure.
At the Center for Advanced Lung Diseases, the physicians providing care are the same specialists conducting leading-edge research. University of Chicago experts are diagnosing lung diseases using innovative minimally invasive 3-D navigational technology, and are investigating better anti-rejection drug regimens for lung transplant recipients. Because we're a major research center, our patients have access to clinical trials of promising new therapies--treatments not widely available.
