    If you need care for a condition not listed here, call 618-943-7238.


    Asthma
    A condition when airways narrow and swell and produce excess mucus which can make breathing difficult. It is often associated with coughing and wheezing.

    Bronchiectasis
    A chronic lung condition where the walls of your airways (bronchi) widen and are thickened from inflammation and infection.

    Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
    A group of lung diseases, including chronic bronchitis and emphysema, that block air passages and make breathing difficult.

    Emphysema
    A lung disease that blocks air passages, causing shortness of breath.  Along with chronic bronchitis, it is the most common condition in the COPD disease group.

    Lung Transplant

    Post Covid

    Pulmonary Fibrosis

    A condition in which tissue deep in the lungs becomes scarred. The scarring is called fibrosis. The condition cannot be cured, but it can be controlled.

    Pulmonary Hypertension
    A type of high blood pressure that affects the lungs and the heart. It worsens over time.

    Sarcoidosis
    The growth of small collections of inflammatory cells that can form lumps in the lungs.

    Scoliosis
    Severe scoliosis may have a significant effect on respiratory function. The effect is most often restrictive due to severe anatomical distortion of the chest, leading to reduced lung volumes, limited diaphragmatic excursion and chest wall muscle inefficiency.

    Sleep Apnea
    A common, potentially life-threatening sleep disorder that most commonly occurs when a person's airway collapses or becomes blocked (this is called obstructive sleep apnea). People with sleep apnea experience pauses in their breathing or shallow breathing while they are sleeping.
