Our faculty are integrally involved in the lung transplantation program at the University of Washington and are also involved in providing lung volume reduction surgery to patients with emphysema. In addition to a chest clinic at each hospital, we also have many specialty clinics providing high quality outpatient care. These include a pulmonary fibrosis clinic, cystic fibrosis clinic, pulmonary hypertension clinic, pulmonary rehabilitation program, neuromuscular weakness clinic and sleep clinic. In addition, our faculty members provide primary and consultative care for the patients in the state-of-the-art intensive care units of the University of Washington Affiliated Hospitals. We are involved in many innovative and pioneering clinical research programs that allow our patients access to new developments in the treatment of pulmonary and critical illness.
