Pulmonary Services

At McLaren, our multidisciplinary teams diagnose and treat a broad range of respiratory disorders, from asthma and emphysema, to lung cancer and sleep apnea. The clinical teams include board-certified pulmonologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, respiratory therapists, sleep technologists, and other specialized personnel who will work hard to improve your quality of living.

When illness or injury affects your ability to breathe, it can be a medical emergency. In the intensive care units, ventilators, or breathing machines, can temporarily take over the breathing function for patients who have the most severe breathing problems. Most of us will not need such drastic intervention, but at McLaren, the Pulmonary Medicine Program is helping many patients to breathe easier.
