Conditions We Treat
A hernia occurs when an internal body part pushes through an opening into an area of the body where it does not belong. In a hiatal hernia, part of the upper stomach bulges through the hiatus - the opening in the diaphragm between the chest and the abdomen through which the esophagus passes. There are two main types of hiatal hernias, a sliding hiatal hernia and a paraesophageal hernia.
Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) is a rare condition that occurs almost exclusively in adult women, but has also been reported in adult men and children with a genetic condition called tuberous sclerosis. LAM is characterized by development of cysts in the lungs, accumulation of fluid around the lungs and abdominal organs, and development of abdominal tumors.
Lung and Chest Disease
Lung and chest disease is any condition that affects the lungs and chest wall. There are many possible conditions that can cause lung or chest disease, such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and lung cancer. Treatment will depend on the underlying condition.
Pulmonary fibrosis is a lung disease that is characterized by damage and scarring of the lung tissue, which can be caused by things such as airborne dusts and asbestos fires, radiation treatment, medications, and certain medical conditions. This tissue becomes stiff, making it difficult for your lungs to work as they should. This results in difficulty breathing and shortness of breath.
Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a condition caused by high blood pressure in the arteries that carry blood from your heart to your lungs. In patients with pulmonary hypertension, the heart has to work harder to pump blood to the lungs. Over time, pulmonary hypertension can weaken the heart and, ultimately, cause heart failure. Untreated, pulmonary hypertension is almost always fatal.
