Pulmonology is a subspecialty of internal medicine that specializes in diagnosing and treating lung diseases and conditions, as well as chest infections and breathing problems.

Our lungs help us breathe and exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide so that our body can properly function. Illness or disease in the airways, lung tissue or cardiovascular system, or from neurological or muscular conditions, limit the amount of air that reaches the lungs.

Physicians on the medical staff at Baylor University Medical Center offer advanced diagnostic and treatment options and often partner with other medical specialties—such as cardiology, neurology, oncology, surgery, and transplantation—to manage and treat acute and chronic respiratory and pulmonary disorders.
