• Pulmonary Medicine

    The pulmonary medicine specialists at Lahey Medical Center, Peabody, offer the highest quality treatment for a wide range of acute (short-term) and chronic (long-term) conditions that affect breathing.

    The conditions we treat include:

    • Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency, an inherited genetic disorder that results in emphysema and liver disease
    • Asthma, a condition that involves muscle spasms of the airways along with inflammation and increased mucus secretions
    • Emphysema, a type of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in which there is damage to the air sacs in the lungs
    • Lung cancer, in which cells in the lungs grow and divide without control or order, creating tumors
    • Pleural disorders, which are diseases that involve the lining of the lungs (the pleura)
    • Pneumonia, a disease caused by viruses or bacteria that causes increased fluid in the lungs
    • Pulmonary fibrosis, the medical term for a group of lung diseases whose common characteristic is scarring in the tissues of the lungs
    • Sarcoidosis, a disease that starts in the lungs and causes inflammation of the body's tissues
    • Tuberculosis, a highly contagious lung infection

    Pulmonary Function Testing

    At Lahey Medical Center, Peabody, we also offer a pulmonary function testing (PFT) laboratory to assist in the diagnosis of lung problems and determine their extent. These tests measure how well your lungs are working and how effective they are in bringing oxygen to the rest of your body.
