Airway Disorders Program

Offering Advanced Treatments for Asthma and Airway Stenosis

When you're having difficulty breathing, it’s important to find out the cause (or causes) quickly, so that you can receive effective treatment. Because the cause of breathing difficulties may be complicated, the experienced physicians within Temple Lung Center’s Airway Disorders Program examine the patient as a whole.

Types of airway disorders include asthma and airway stenosis. Using a range of tests performed in Temple’s dedicated pulmonary function testing lab, doctors at the Airway Disorders Program work together to reach an accurate diagnosis for each patient.

Finding Relief for Severe Asthma 

Many patients who suffer from moderate to severe asthma may not realize the severity of their disease. They may not know that their lives don't have to be limited.

Our goal is to get patients back to the life they once enjoyed. We work closely with each patient to identify what they want to improve. Then we customize a treatment plan to help them find relief.

The Temple Lung Center offers the latest treatment options for patients with severe or uncontrolled asthma, including bronchial thermoplasty. We were the first center in the region to offer this FDA-approved treatment.

A Comprehensive Approach

Our doctors use a multidisciplinary approach in both diagnosing and treating patients with asthma and other airway disorders. This means patients benefit from the knowledge of a variety of specialists, including:

  • Pulmonologists
  • Thoracic surgeons
  • Interventional radiologists
  • Ear, nose and throat specialists

This approach often leads to a more accurate diagnosis, which means a more effective and individualized treatment plan. Our doctors also work with referring physicians to make sure patients are properly monitored and receive the best possible care throughout the course of their treatment.
