Pulmonology is the medical specialty dealing with the respiratory tract. Pulmonologists are specially trained in diseases and conditions of the chest, particularly pneumonia, asthma, tuberculosis, emphysema and chest infections.
Striving to help each patient achieve and maintain his or her optimal level of health, the staff of the Sunrise Medical Group Pulmonary Group works as a team in its clinical programs to relieve the suffering of their patients while providing support for patients and their families coping with the difficult realities of health issues.
Treatment options typically include medication, pulmonary hygiene, nutrition, breathing and retraining, exercise programs, stress management, counseling and support for terminal diseases and multiple options for the cessation of cigarette smoking. At Sunrise Medical Group, we offer Pulmonary Rehabilitation, which combines exercise training with educational programs designed to help patients with Chronic Respiratory Disease, such as COPD, to control their symptoms and improve their daily activities.
Our pulmonary rehabilitation program includes education with therapeutic exercise and activities. Physicians, nurses, rehabilitation therapists and dietitians work together to create a comprehensive program designed to meet the unique needs of each patient.
