In many cases, lung disease can be treated in a variety of ways, depending on your specific condition. Treatments such as medication, breathing treatments, breathing devices and special types of therapies can all improve various stages of lung disease. Your treatment will be determined by your dedicated team at Jewish Hospital, who will work with you to answer any questions and address any concerns, as well as point you to a treatment and health management program that is right for you.
In serious cases, lung disease becomes life threatening and medication and therapies may no longer be effective in treating the condition. In this case, a lung transplant may be discussed as the best method to increase life expectancy and improve overall quality of life.
