Physicians, nurses and staff evaluate and treat a wide variety of lung-related problems, including asthma, acute and chronic pulmonary infections, cystic fibrosis and sleep disorders.
The Pediatric Pulmonology program at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital is accredited by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation as a Cystic Fibrosis Care Center, serving as a center of excellence for clinical care, research and multi-disciplinary support for Cystic Fibrosis (CF) patients. The program is also a Cystic Fibrosis Foundation designated Therapeutic Development Center — one of more than 80 centers worldwide specializing in clinical trials to evaluate the safety and efficacy of new therapies.
Our pulmonologists also lead a collaborative asthma program aimed at reducing the rate of hospitalization for children with asthma and linking hospital-based and community resources for families of asthmatic children.
