RWJPE Pulmonologists are located in Somerset, NJ, convenient for anyone in the Central Jersey area.
Physicians who specialize in pulmonary and critical care medicine have expertise in treating lung-related conditions and patients who are critically ill.
Some of the most common conditions a pulmonologist / critical care specialist treats are chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), bronchitis, emphysema, asthma, and lung cancer. Patients experiencing a chronic cough or shortness of breath should see a pulmonologist for a complete evaluation and work-up of their lung health and function. Find more information about pulmonary conditions and treatments in our patient education library.
A variety of minimally invasive diagnostic and treatment procedures are available for managing and controlling symptoms of respiratory problems and lung disease.
Lung function can be evaluated with a pulmonary function test (PFT). Chest x-rays, CT scans, and other diagnostic tools may also be used to check for asthma and more serious conditions like lung cancer. Smoking cessation programs are also offered by a pulmonologist.
For critically ill patients, the continual monitoring of vital signs and quality of life factors is an essential role that the pulmonary / critical care team provides at RWJ Physician Enterprise. We provide immediate care for serious infections, respiratory failure, surgery complications, and much more.
