For some patients, a comprehensive rehabilitation program is key in coping with pulmonary disease. Pulmonary rehabilitation can help patients regain their strength and endurance while breathing easier. Our program addresses both physical and emotional issues associated with chronic pulmonary diseases. We work closely with our patients' primary care providers to ensure the highest quality of care.
Positive outcomes of pulmonary rehabilitation include a reduced number of hospitalizations, as well as reduced symptoms like shortness of breath and fatigue.
