The Lung Center

The Lung Center at Brigham and Women's Hospital (among the top ranked in the country by U.S. News & World Report) provides comprehensive, customized care for all lung patients by bringing together a multidisciplinary team of medical and surgical experts from the Divisions of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine and Thoracic Surgery and the Lowe Center for Thoracic Oncology within Dana-Farber Brigham Cancer Center.

Thirty six programs—for common, chronic and critical respiratory conditions— integrate the skills of sub-specialists across a dozen disciplines, all with focused training in specific lung diseases. Together, our specialized lung teams address the unique needs of each patient, delivering the latest innovations in prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
