Pulmonary Function Lab
Pulmonary Function Testing is performed in order to diagnose lung diseases, such as asthma, bronchitis and emphysema; determine the cause of shortness of breath; and measure effects of occupational and environmental exposure. It is helpful to assess the effect of medication, measure progress in disease treatment and evaluate pre and post-surgery.
We have an in-house pulmonary function lab where we provide advanced diagnosis. In addition, our compassionate staff listens to patients, because we know how difficult chronic health conditions are for you and your family. In other words, we never treat you as a number but provide comprehensive and a personalized treatment plan based on your needs.
The Advanced Pulmonary Care You Need
Thanks to modern medical advances, many patients with pulmonary conditions are able to minimize their symptoms and enjoy an improved quality of life. Find out how we can accurately diagnose and treat your illness using state-of-the-art methods. The conditions we treat include the following.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
This is a common affliction for smokers, but can also result from a genetic condition. The physicians at MCPC help sufferers with this condition by providing pulmonary function testing, inhalers, and other treatment options. We are innovative and remain up to date with the latest research on the most effective treatments.
This genetically predisposed condition causes inflammation of the airways that makes it difficult to breathe. Both children and adults are susceptible to the condition. We treat it with a variety of methods, such as steroids and inhalers. For those who do not respond to typical treatment, we also provide immunotherapy and bronchial thermoplasty.
Interstitial Lung Diseases
Interstitial lung diseases are a heterogeneous group of progressive disorders affecting the lung interstitium. Diagnosis and treatment options include laboratory tests, imaging studies, bronchoscopy, and lung biopsy.
Our experienced medical team offers lung cancer screening. Detection of a nodule may be crucial in diagnosis and possible curative treatment of lung cancer. We offer the right care for you and work closely with your oncology doctors as well.
