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.
