COPD, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, affects millions of Americans. It’s the third leading cause of death in the United States, yet it’s also highly treatable and preventable.
At Sutter Pacific Medical Foundation, pulmonary specialists have deep expertise in treating acute and chronic lung conditions, including asthma, bronchiolitis, emphysema and pneumonia. We also offer treatment for interstitial lung disease, advanced COPD, pulmonary nodules and pulmonary hypertension. We provide comprehensive pulmonary care, including diagnosis and treatment.
If you are experiencing symptoms such as chronic cough, shortness of breath, wheezing and recurrent infections, we provide a full suite of tests and imaging technologies to make an accurate diagnosis. Our Respiratory Clinic in San Francisco offers comprehensive treatment for severe respiratory illnesses, including asthma, bronchitis, COPD, flu, pneumonia, pulmonary fibrosis and strep.
We also can refer you to many educational classes and support groups, from smoking cessation programs to stress management classes, that can complement your treatment plan and help you improve your health.
