Most people take 17,000 breaths a day without even thinking about it. But for children with lung disease, breathing isn't always so easy.
At Cincinnati Children's, we want every child to be able to blow out the candles on their next birthday cake. Our pulmonary medicine program is ranked No. 2 in the country in the 2014-15 list of Best Children’s Hospitals published by U.S. News & World Report.
And we continue to grow. We have added a new center of excellence for patients with difficult-to-treat obstructive sleep apnea, a program for complex asthma care and launched a lung transplant program. We also have expanded our clinical translational and basic science research in cystic fibrosis.
“Our transplant program completes the spectrum of care that we provide. It provides a wider range of treatment options and will help extend life expectancy for children with chronic respiratory failure,” says Raouf Amin, MD, director of Pulmonary Medicine.
Nine years ago, our pulmonary program included eight specialists in pediatric lung disease. Now our team includes 28 physicians and researchers who help children with asthma, cystic fibrosis (CF), sleep disorders and a variety of rare lung disorders.
