Pulmonary care

At HCA Houston Healthcare, we provide advanced treatment options for patients with lung and respiratory conditions. We proudly treat both adult and pediatric patients throughout Houston and its surrounding areas.

The pulmonologists at HCA Houston are experts at treating chronic lung conditions and use a number of treatments including education, lung therapies, lifestyle changes and medications. We want our patients to stay healthy and be able to live their lives to the fullest. Our goal is your long-term lung and respiratory well-being.

Pulmonary rehabilitation

Pulmonary rehabilitation is one of the most effective treatment options for patients suffering from a chronic lung disease. Although pulmonary rehabilitation is not a cure for respiratory problems, it can help treat symptoms and has been shown to reduce the number and length of hospital stays in patients with chronic lung diseases. The goal of our pulmonary rehabilitation program is to increase activity levels while decreasing symptoms, like shortness of breath. We prioritize your safety and comfort during the rehabilitation process. Our program focuses on education, exercise and emotional support.

Conditions that commonly benefit from pulmonary rehabilitation include:

  • Asthma
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Bronchitis
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Pneumonia
  • Emphysema

Lung cancer screening

According to the American Lung Association, lung cancer causes the most cancer-related deaths in both males and females in the U.S. Although, if detected early, lung cancer becomes much more treatable. At HCA Houston, we treat patients battling lung cancer and provide pulmonary rehabilitation services for patients recovering following a lung cancer-related surgery.

HCA Houston Healthcare proudly offers screening services to help detect lung cancer early. We offer low-dose CT scans that are able to detect the early signs of lung cancer.
