Interstitial Lung Disease Treatment

The ILD Program offers comprehensive care in conjunction with other departments including Rheumatology, Radiology, Pathology and Dermatology among others. The diagnosis and management of individual patient cases are reviewed weekly at the multidisciplinary conference with post-fellowship trained ILD Pulmonologists, Radiologists and Pathologists in attendance (pictured above). Such an approach is crucial for the accurate diagnosis and treatment of these relatively rare diseases.

Our program actively enrolls patients in clinical trials for therapies targeted at Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis, and is also a LAM Foundation approved clinic.
