The University of Chicago Medicine - Comer Children's Hospital

Why Choose Us for Pediatric Pulmonary Medicine?

Physicians at the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital are recognized experts in the treatment of childhood lung disorders. We provide expert consultation, evaluation, and treatment of difficult-to-manage and often life-threatening asthma. At the same time, our doctors are actively involved in research to better understand the underlying causes and the genetics of asthma.

Our diagnostic capabilities are extensive and include specialized testing for infants with lung problems. The University of Chicago was the first hospital in the area to offer infant pulmonary function testing, which allows doctors to accurately measure lung function in babies.

Cystic Fibrosis Center

The University of Chicago Medicine is also home to a dedicated Cystic Fibrosis Center, fully accredited by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. At the center, a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals coordinates treatment of this complex genetic disorder to minimize its effect on a child's lungs and nutritional health.
