Pulmonary Medicine

Generally considered a branch of internal medicine, Pulmonology is the specialty that deals with diseases of the lungs and the respiratory tract. Pulmonology is concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of lung diseases, as well as secondary prevention (known as Tuberculosis). A pulmonologist, also known as a pulmonary disease specialist, is a physician who possesses the medical expertise for diagnosis and treatment of pulmonary (lung) conditions and diseases.
