Expert Care for Respiratory Diseases and Critical Illness

SLUCare pulmonologists and critical care physicians are fellowship-trained specialists using the latest treatments for complex respiratory illnesses, both in the hospital and in specialized outpatient clinics.

Diagnosis and treatment take place in our state-of-the-art facilities, allowing us to provide sophisticated lung function tests, chest imaging, bronchoscopies, lung biopsies and other diagnostic procedures. As part of an academic medical practice, our doctors coordinate care across specialties — such as interventional pulmonology and oncology — to streamline and optimize care for each patient's unique needs.

SLUCare pulmonologists treat:

Procedures include:

  • Cardiopulmonary stress evaluations for the workup of unexplained shortness of breath
  • Chest imaging
  • Video-assisted thoracoscopic pleural and lung biopsy
  • Interventional bronchoscopic procedures, including argon laser bronchoscopy and brachytherapy
  • Evaluations for lung transplantation
  • Screening for chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH)
  • Non-invasive mechanical ventilation
  • Weaning from mechanical ventilation
