Conditions We Treat

Our physicians have dedicated their careers to studying the causes, symptoms, and effects of pulmonary diseases, such as:

Other conditions such as gastroesophageal reflux (GERD or heartburn), sinusitis, and allergies can exacerbate asthma symptoms. 

The Asthma Institute at UPMC provides treatment of these conditions in an effort to lessen the frequency and severity of asthma attacks.
The UPMC Health Library provides a closer look at how we explore asthma testing and treatment including in-depth diagrams and images.
