Lahey offers a number of pulmonary and multidisciplinary clinics, centers and programs to benefit our pulmonary patients.
The Asthma Center at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center is designed to assist primary care physicians in managing their own asthma patients. Our focus is on comprehensive evaluation, treatment and patient education for asthma patients whose conditions range from mild to severe.
Bringing together specialists from Pulmonary Medicine, Allergy & Immunology, and Pharmacy, we provide a team approach to the evaluation and treatment of asthma conditions.
Lahey’s Center for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a collaborative, multidisciplinary team of health care professionals committed to improving and maintaining the health and quality of life for our patients with COPD through a comprehensive disease management program. We believe that COPD is a reversible and treatable disease, and that early and ongoing treatment can change and improve the lives of those affected.
Lahey Hospital & Medical Center has achieved international recognition for its pioneering work in the field of interventional pulmonary medicine. This field includes diagnostic and therapeutic procedures related to critical care medicine and the care of patients with a variety of pulmonary conditions such as lung cancer, pleural disease and airway disorders.
Lung Cancer Treatment & Percepta Registry
Lahey Hospital & Medical Center is the first hospital in New England utilizing a registry to offer an innovative way to help diagnose lung cancer which may reduce the risks associated with more invasive biopsies and diminish the uncertainties of bronchoscopy results.
Lahey pulmonologists are using advanced genomic technology called Percepta to help determine whether a spot found on a patient’s lung is benign or malignant. By improving preoperative diagnostic accuracy, the aim is to help patients avoid unnecessary more invasive procedures.
Pulmonary Hypertension Clinic
The Pulmonary Hypertension Clinic is located in the department of Pulmonary and Critical Care at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center, Burlington. The clinic is a multidisciplinary referral center for the comprehensive evaluation and management of patients with all forms of pulmonary hypertension.
Patients with pulmonary hypertension undergo extensive diagnostic testing in the state-of-the-art-facility and are cared for by an expert team that comprises of pulmonary and critical care physicians, interventional cardiologists, a clinical nurse specialist and pharmacist. There is also a frequent involvement of physicians from other specialties and subspecialties, such as Cardiology, Rheumatology, and Hepatology. Both outpatient and inpatient management involves close clinical follow-up. Patients also have access to participate in clinical trials.
