Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine

Breathing should be effortless, yet for many people it becomes a struggle that disrupts daily life. Temple's board-certified pulmonologists can diagnose and treat a wide range of lung problems, including:

  • Emphysema
  • Chronic bronchitis
  • Pleural disease
  • Pneumonia
  • Pulmonary hypertension
  • Chronic cough
  • Asthma
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
  • Interstitial lung disease
  • Lung carcinoma
  • Sarcoidosis
  • Granulomatous lung disease

Sleep, like breathing, should come naturally and effortlessly, but countless people suffer from disorders that prevent a good night's rest. Temple's board certified sleep medicine physicians are trained to uncover and resolve these conditions. They can diagnose sleep disorders based on medical history, physical exam and sleep studies. A sleep study can detect:

  • Sleep apnea
  • Sleep cycle disruption
  • Restless leg syndrome
  • Insomnia
  • Dream disturbance/night terrors
  • Narcolepsy
  • Nighttime pain

Treatment may include lifestyle changes, medications, CPAP masks, dental devices and surgery.

Temple's pulmonologists and sleep specialists are available at a convenient suburban location.
