Helping our patients breathe better.

Pulmonologists provide expert consultation, diagnosis and care for illnesses and conditions that affect the respiratory system, including the lungs, airways, muscles surrounding the chest and diaphragm.

Our Pulmonology Services

Pulmonary diseases range from acute illnesses, such as infections, to chronic and more serious conditions like sleep disorders, asthma, emphysema, chronic bronchitis, cystic fibrosis, occupational exposures, lung cancer and more.

Olathe Health's pulmonologists provide evaluations and treatment, inpatient critical care and consultation for hospitalized patients, and prescribe and evaluate sleep studies and therapies. Diagnostic pulmonary procedures include bronchoscopy, lung function testing, determining how well the heart and lungs work together during exercise, or performing sleep studies.

Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation

After a heart attack or other heart or lung surgery, many patients are prescribed cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation at Olathe Medical Center, designed to help patients with heart and lung patients return to productive lives. The program includes healthy lifestyle education, a closely monitored exercise program, diet and nutrition counseling, and plenty of encouragement and support. Learn more about our Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation program.

Sleep Disorders

Pulmonologists also care for patients who suffer from sleep disorders. If you or someone you care about experiences symptoms that affect the ability to drive, hold a job, stay alert in school, perform normal daily activities or if the symptoms interfere with social activities and personal relationships, it’s time to schedule an appointment with a healthcare provider.
