Pediatric Pulmonology at Bronson Children’s Hospital - Bronson Healthcare

Pediatric Pulmonology

If your child is having respiratory problems involving his or her breathing and lung function, our partners in pediatric pulmonology are here for you. Bronson Children’s Hospital partners with Western Michigan University Homer Stryker M.D. School of Medicine (WMed) to provide care for children with respiratory conditions.

Childhood respiratory conditions we treat

From asthma and chronic coughs to cystic fibrosis and neuromuscular diseases, our pulmonologists treat a variety of respiratory conditions in children of all ages. Commonly treated conditions include:

  • Asthma and functional respiratory disorders
  • Chronic cough, chronic wheezing and noisy airway
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Infectious diseases and chronic lung disease
  • Functional respiratory disorders
  • Neuromuscular disease

If your child needs care for a condition not listed here, consult with one of our children's health providers.

Tests and treatment for breathing and lung conditions

The pulmonologists at the WMed Pediatric Pulmonology Clinic use a number of tests to evaluate your child’s lung-related condition and provide the latest treatments to help him or her feel better. Some of the most common tests and treatment are:

  • Lung function testing – a test that determines lung capacity and functional level
  • Exercise evaluation
  • Fiberoptic laryngoscopy/bronchoscopy – a procedure that examines the airway by inserting a scope into the esophagus

Your child’s pulmonology care team

The WMed clinic includes a fully-accredited pediatric cystic fibrosis care teaching and research center. There are also specialty clinics in asthma and ventilator care. If your child is a patient, you can expect a team approach including a specialty nurse, respiratory therapist, social worker, dietician and board-certified pediatric pulmonologist.
