Our pulmonary specialists (lung and respiratory care doctors known as pulmonologists) treat infants, children and teens with diseases of the lungs and airways in family-friendly outpatient and inpatient environments. And because these diseases can affect other parts of the body, we work closely with specialists across Nemours. Together, our teams are dedicated to giving each child comprehensive and convenient care.
Our pulmonary specialists evaluate and care for children with conditions such as:
- airway obstruction
- apnea (brief pauses in breathing, usually during sleep)
- asthma (a lung condition that causes difficulty breathing)
- bronchopulmonary dysplasia (inflammation and scarring in the lungs that develops in premature babies after being on a ventilator for a prolonged period of time)
- cystic fibrosis (a chronic genetic disorder that leads to excess mucus in the lungs along with other findings)
- chronic cough
- muscular dystrophy
- recurrent pneumonia (lung infection)
- sleep-related breathing problems
- ventilator dependence
- tracheostomy (a surgical procedure that creates an opening in the windpipe when breathing is obstructed)
- tuberculosis (a specific type of bacterial infection of the lungs)
- RSV (respiratory syncytial virus), a virus that is particularly dangerous to premature babies

The Nemours Commitment to Family-Centered Care
At Nemours, we recognize the importance of the family in the care and healing process. Because many of the children we see have chronic illnesses that require repeated visits, we build strong relationships with our families that foster respect, dignity and collaboration. We’re also committed to educating children and families about the medical condition, and how best to manage it. Our goal is to get your child back to the business of being a kid as quickly as possible.
