Pulmonary Clinic

The lungs are one of the body's vital organs. They continuously perform their functions day and night. We breathe over 20,000 – 30,000 times per day. Changing environments with air pollution, whether from PM 2.5, car exhausts, or pollutants from the burning of agricultural fields, is adversely challenging to the lungs and increasing the risk of lung diseases.
Pulmonary diseases or lung and respiratory tract disorders usually manifest numerous symptoms, such as difficulty breathing, coughing, chest tightness, and coughing up blood-tinged phlegms. These symptoms can be signs of common lung conditions, such as asthma, emphysema, and tuberculosis, or more severe and complex ones, such as lung cancer or sarcoidosis, as well as infectious respiratory illnesses like COVID-19 and seasonal influenza. Lung diseases are often asymptomatic. Once symptoms are apparent, it may be too late for treatment. Delayed treatment can significantly damage the lungs, causing long-term effects on a patient's life.

The Pulmonary Clinic at MedPark Hospital aims to provide comprehensive diagnostic and therapeutic treatment for patients with respiratory and pulmonary diseases. Every step is proceeded carefully, from screening for risk groups to providing effective treatment, using state-of-the-art technologies for diagnosis and treatment. A negative-pressure examination room allows for clean air, preventing cross-contamination.

Why the Pulmonary Clinic at MedPark Hospital?

  • Highly experienced specialist doctors certified by the American Board of Pulmonary Medicine lead the operation of the Clinic. From diagnosing the root causes to delivering efficient, expert care, our doctors plan each stage of treatment meticulously.
  • A specialist doctor performs a thorough pulmonary function test, including a lung volume test, spirometry (using a spirometer), and DLCO.
  • Our specialist doctors specialize in performing bronchoscopy for follow-up checkups of patients with lung diseases, lung cancer, interstitial, and infectious lung diseases. 
  • Screening for an early stage of lung cancer is accurately performed with the help of a Low-Dose CT Scan lung.
  • Pulmonary and respiratory illnesses are highly contagious and require special care. Thus, negative-pressure examination rooms in the Pulmonary Clinic are constructed with a double-door entrance to keep the pressure inside the examination rooms lower than the rest of the hospital and prevent contaminated air from escaping into the building. High-efficiency filters also are installed to minimize the risk of spreading infections in the hospital.
