Pulmonology

The pediatric pulmonology program at All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, Florida, treats children with acute and chronic diseases of the respiratory system, including asthma, cystic fibrosis, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, central apnea, sleep apnea and sleep-disordered breathing.

The program is accredited by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation as a Cystic Fibrosis Care Center, serving as a center of excellence for clinical care, research, and multi-disciplinary support for CF patients. The program is also a Cystic Fibrosis Foundation designated Therapeutic Development Center – one of 77 centers worldwide specializing in clinical trials to evaluate the safety and efficacy of new therapies. 

The pediatric pulmonologists also lead a collaborative asthma program at All Children’s aimed at reducing the rate of hospitalization for children with asthma and linking hospital-based and community resources for families of asthmatic children.
