specialized, comprehensive care for children with breathing issues

The pediatric pulmonary medicine team at Dayton Children's provides expert care for children and teens with breathing problems. Our board-certified, fellowship-trained pediatric pulmonologists lead a team of experienced nurses and respiratory thereapists to provide the highest quality of care for patients. They provide treatment for the full range of breathing-related conditions such as asthma, undiagnosed wheezing and coughing and cystic fibrosis.

Our patients and families appreciate the personal, consistent care they receive from our team. Many of our patients have a complex medical condition. That’s why our team works with other experts at Dayton Children’s to make sure each patient receives the care they need. These can include experts in the heart, sleep, speech and many others.
