Novant Health Pulmonary & Critical Care – Waverly brings remarkable care for lung conditions and breathing concerns to your neighborhood. Our team of providers have devoted their careers to diagnosing and treating conditions that affect the way you breathe. We work in both the inpatient and outpatient settings, providing critical care during hospital stays and continuing care after discharge. Whether you need treatment for an acute illness or management of a chronic condition, we are here for you.

Conditions we regularly treat or manage include:

  • Asthma (a respiratory condition that makes breathing difficult)
  • Bronchitis (inflammation of the bronchial tubes that often causes coughing)
  • Emphysema (a condition where damaged air sacs in the lungs cause breathlessness)
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD; a condition in which constricted airways regularly cause difficulty or discomfort in breathing)
  • Pulmonary fibrosis (a lung disease caused by damaged or scarred lung tissue)
  • Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS; a condition in which fluid leaks into the lungs, making breathing difficult)
  • Cystic fibrosis (a hereditary disease in which the body produces thick mucous that can clog the lungs)
  • Sleep apnea (interruptions in breathing during sleep)

 

Services we offer include:

  • Care before and after lung transplants
  • Pulmonary function testing (to evaluate lung function; often used to assess the impacts of diseases or the effects of environmental exposures, and can be required before undergoing surgery or starting certain types of employment)
  • Pulmonary rehabilitation (a combination of education and exercises to help patients with chronic lung disease improve lung function)
  • Interventional bronchoscopy (a group of minimally invasive procedures aimed at improving lung function)
  • Sleep medicine (the evaluation and management of breathing problems, including snoring and sleep apnea, during sleep)
  • Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) prescriptions and management
  • Airway management (a medical procedure done to prevent or lessen airway obstruction)
