UM St. Joseph Medical Center pulmonologists treat lung cancer and disease. We diagnose and treat lung diseases in our Pulmonary Function Laboratory.


Our pulmonary specialists offer surgical and clinical treatment for lung diseases, including:

Lung Cancer

Lung cancer is the second most common cancer in both men and women (not counting skin cancer) and is the leading cause of cancer deaths for women in the U.S.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

COPD is usually caused by smoking or second-hand smoke and is the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S. Air pollutants and fumes can also cause COPD.
