Cystic Fibrosis Clinic

Because proper treatment and care can influence a patient's life expectancy far beyond the median survival of around 47 years, it is important that care is provided by an accredited CF center. Our Cystic Fibrosis Clinic is accredited by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

To ensure the best care to meet the unique needs of our patients, our center has both a pediatric program and an adult program, which has an active lung transplant program. Both the adult and pediatric programs work closely with other specialists, including gastroenterologists, endocrinologists, otolaryngologists, psychiatrists, genetic counselors and surgeons.
