The Pulmonology Department comprehensive diagnosis, treatment, education, and rehabilitation services for a full range of pulmonary diseases and allergy conditions. The practice has an award-winning clinical program in asthma and expertise in fibrotic lung disease, bronchiectasis, pulmonary hypertension, sarcoidosis, and tuberculosis. Several of the physicians have been recognized for their excellence in patient care by the Consumers' Guide to Top Doctors. All of the physicians are board-certified in pulmonary medicine and some have additional certification in allergy and immunology and critical care medicine.

Boston Medical Center is an international referral center for the diagnosis and treatment of amyloidosis, a rare group of diseases caused by the abnormal accumulation of the protein amyloid in various parts of the body. This can occur as part of a bone marrow plasma cell disorder (AL), as a hereditary form (AF), an age-related form (senile systemic amyloidosis due to ATTR), or secondary to chronic inflammatory or infectious diseases (AA).
Conditions We Treat
When the body’s immune system reacts to a foreign substance like a particular food, pet dander or medication, it’s called an allergy.
Amyloid is an abnormal protein that can build up in various organs and tissues of the body, causing a rare disease called amyloidosis. While there is not a cure for amyloidosis, there are treatments to help control the production of amyloid in the body.
Asthma is a chronic disease marked by difficulty with breathing. Asthma causes a narrowing of the airways, resulting in wheezing, coughing, tightness in the chest and shortness of breath.
Bronchiectasis is a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) characterized by permanent damage to the lung’s major airways. Boston Medical Center offers the only coordinated, multidisciplinary program in Massachusetts to help reduce recurrent infections and treat symptoms of the condition with a focus on improving quality of life.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a lung disease caused by damage to the lungs over a long period of time, usually due to smoking. Symptoms include coughing and shortness of breath, and because it takes many years to see symptoms, COPD occurs most often in people over 60 and gets worse over time.
Pulmonary complications are exceedingly common among patients infected with HIV. Moreover, the longer life expectancy of HIV-infected individuals has led to the recognition of many infectious and non-infectious pulmonary complications, including the well-established association between HIV and pulmonary hypertension (HIV-PH). The practice is the referral group for all HIV providers within Boston Medical Center for evaluation and treatment of the pulmonary and mycobacterial complications that occur in HIV-infected individuals.
The diaphragm is a dome-shaped muscle located between the abdomen and the chest cavity (thorax). It allows air to flow in and out of the lungs by decreasing pressure in the lungs and helping the rib cage expand when one inhales. Tumors can develop in the diaphragm, which can be malignant (cancerous) or benign (non-cancerous). These tumors may originate in the diaphragm or spread from elsewhere.
The Primary Immunodeficiency Clinic diagnoses and cares for patients with immunological conditions for which the cause is unknown. This includes patients with frequent infections and inflammatory and autoimmune diseases that do not respond to treatment. Boston Medical Center immunologists provide cutting-edge autoimmune testing and treatment, including immunoglobulin replacement therapy, precision immunomodulatory infusions, and prophylactic anti-infective agents. Patients with primary immunodeficiency also have the opportunity to participate in clinical trials funded by the National Institutes of Health, Immune Deficiency Foundation, and other organizations.
Pulmonary hypertension is a type of high blood pressure that affects the lungs and right side of the heart. It begins when tiny arteries in the lungs become narrowed or blocked, causing the right ventricle in the heart to pump harder. It is a serious, progressive disease with no cure.
Sarcoidosis is an inflammatory disease that affects multiple organs in the body, but mostly the lungs and lymph glands. Several of the team’s physicians specialize in the diagnosis and management of sarcoidosis and interstitial lung disease. They work collaboratively with other specialists at Boston Medical Center to provide comprehensive treatment for the many manifestations of sarcoidosis, including those to the heart, skin, and central nervous system.
Scleroderma is an autoimmune disease that causes the skin and internal organs to harden. The Scleroderma Center at BMC is recognized internationally as a leader in scleroderma, and is the largest scleroderma program in New England. Our senior physicians (Drs. Trojanowski, York, Bujor) who lead the Scleroderma Program have extensive experience in the care of scleroderma. We offer the latest diagnostic and therapeutic measures available. Physicians take a multidisciplinary approach for diagnosis and treatment, working with specialists in cardiology, pulmonology, dermatology, gastroenterology, radiology, urology, and others as needed.
Sleep disorders include any disruption in the normal sleep pattern, including abnormal breathing and movement, falling and staying asleep, and other sleep issues. A sleep disorder can negatively affect health and quality of life, can affect any age group, and is usually treatable.
Tuberculosis (TB) is a serious bacterial infection that mainly affects the lungs. The bacteria spread from person to person via sneezing and cough. It is highly contagious. Most TB infections are latent (no symptoms), with about 1 in 10 having an active infection and symptoms including cough, exhaustion and more. Both latent and active TB is treatable with antibiotics but can be fatal if left untreated.
Treatments & Services
The Interventional Bronchoscopy program is dedicated to the care of patients with complex airway disease including obstructing cancers, broncholiths, relapsing polychondritis, tracheoesophageal fistulae, tracheobronchial and laryngeal amyloidosis, papillomatosis, tracheal stenoses, and tracheomalacia.
Pulmonary and Exercise Physiology
The Pulmonary Physiology service provides comprehensive, state-of-the-art assessment of respiratory mechanics and function. The goal is to assist the clinician in the diagnosis and prognosis of all forms of pulmonary-related diseases and to assist the clinical investigator in the pursuit of understanding and defining pulmonary disease through research.
