Pediatric Pulmonology

If your child has trouble breathing, you need specialized care. At Providence, we treat a wide range of lung and respiratory issues in infants, children and teens. 

Our pediatric specialists are trained to diagnose and treat children with respiratory conditions like asthma, chronic cough and cystic fibrosis. The experienced pediatric pulmonologists at Providence help your child – and you – breathe easier. 

We treat a wide range of breathing and other lung disorders in infants, children and teens. This can include: 

  • Allergies
  • Asthma 
  • Bronchopulmonary dysplasia 
  • Chronic cough 
  • Chronic lung disease 
  • Cystic fibrosis 
  • Respiratory distress 
  • Wheezing 

Your doctor will go over medical history and symptoms, run tests and discuss results and your care goals with you. Most children will head home with a diagnosis and a treatment plan. Your doctor may want to schedule a follow-up visit, depending on your care plan.

If your child’s breathing problem is more serious, your pediatric pulmonologist can discuss inpatient and outpatient treatments, including surgical procedures and non-invasive therapies.
