The only coordinated, multidisciplinary program of its kind in Massachusetts, the BMC Bronchiectasis Program offers specialty care to diagnose and manage adult patients with bronchiectasis: a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) characterized by permanent damage to the lung’s major airways. The unique care model helps reduce recurrent infections and treat symptoms of the condition with a focus on improving quality of life.
Our experts provide comprehensive care for patients diagnosed with bronchiectasis.
Bronchiectasis is often associated with diseases such as cystic fibrosis, tuberculosis, and immunodeficiency disorders. Comprehensive treatment of the condition’s underlying cause as well as management of its symptoms requires the expertise and communication of specialists from across disciplines, including allergy and immunology, clinical genetics, infectious diseases, otolaryngology, pulmonary disease and thoracic surgery. Most of these clinical services are conveniently located in the Shapiro Center.
From evaluation through treatment, patients can rest assured that they are receiving top-notch care from physicians and staff in an atmosphere specially designed for comfort and healing.
