When you have a problem with your lungs — whether it's a lifelong disease or a short-term illness — it can make breathing difficult and potentially lead to other serious health issues.

Pulmonologists at Rush use the latest diagnostic tools and treatments to address the full spectrum of lung diseases. They also see patients with diseases that affect both the heart and lungs, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

And if you or a loved one has a chronic condition, such as mesothelioma or cystic fibrosis, Rush offers tightly coordinated, personalized care to reduce symptoms, improve quality of life and slow disease progression.

Recognized for excellence in pulmonology and lung surgery care. U.S. News & World Report ranked Rush University Medical Center’s pulmonology and critical care medicine program among the best in the nation.

Comprehensive care for co-existing conditions

If you are suffering from a combination of symptoms, including coughing, breathing problems, persistent sinus pain and pressure, and sleep disturbances, you may benefit from the one-stop approach at the Rush Sinus, Allergy and Asthma Center.

The center, the first of its kind in the Chicago area, brings together specialists from allergy/immunology, laryngology, pulmonology, rhinology, sleep medicine and sleep surgery to care for people who have co-existing sinusitis, allergies, asthma and/or sleep apnea. When you have more than one of these conditions at the same time, effective treatment requires the expertise of more than one specialist. Our team coordinates all of your care, so you can get the relief you need to lead a full, active life.
