The following websites are provided to assist our patients in finding more information from local and national sources for various pulmonary-related conditions.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
In 2012, Georgetown-St. David’s Hospital developed an active outpatient pulmonary rehabilitation program for patients with advanced lung disease. Pulmonary Rehab programs across the United States have benefited patients in terms of quality of life. Programs typically lead to reduced symptoms, improved functional status, and reduced overall healthcare costs related to respiratory ailments. The program typically requires a referral from the patient’s pulmonologist with specific goals set by the pulmonologist as well as the program’s Medical Director (Dr. Esther Fields). For additional information regarding the program, patients may call 512-942-4161 at Georgetown-St. David’s Hospital or our office at 512-819-0132.
