Pulmonology is a medical specialty that deals with diseases involving the respiratory tract including lungs and chest. For patients with lung disease, breathing without effort is often impossible. Sometimes lung disease can be so severe that it affects your independence - even your quality of life. A pulmonologist possesses specialized knowledge and skill in the diagnosis and treatment of pulmonary (lung) conditions and diseases.
