Pulmonary (lung disease)

In the area of lung disease, UT Health Northeast’s passion for pulmonary medicine is evidenced with our origins as a tuberculosis hospital in the 1940s. Our work in this field has positively impacted the lives of countless lung disease patients and families across the East Texas region and throughout the world.

UT Health Northeast enjoys the unique distinction of being the only academic medical institution in the southwest United States that specializes in lung diseases. Lung diseases such as lung cancer, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), mycobacterium avian complex (MAC), emphysema and chronic bronchitis are the third-leading cause of death in the United States.

Treating lung diseases is not just our history – it’s our passion.
