Emory Adult Cystic
Fibrosis Program

Over the past few decades, the life expectancy of patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) has increased dramatically. As patients with CF become adults, new issues and challenges in their care become present that require the expertise of adult-trained sub-specialists.

Some of these include:

  • Diabetes and its complications
  • Osteoporosis and risk of fractures
  • Fertility and family planning
  • Health insurance and employment issues
  • Lung transplantation

The Emory Adult CF Program follows evidenced based practice and is a CF Foundation-accredited care center. Recently, our program's adherence to Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) guidelines was ranked among the best in the nation. We are also proud to be a member of the CFF Therapeutics Development Network giving our patients access to the most up-to-date research trials in CF.

What To Expect

For outpatient care, patients are seen at The Emory Clinic. Pulmonary function testing and visits with each member of the CF care team take place within the patient’s exam room.

When patients need hospitalization they are admitted to Emory University Hospital and are seen by both the hospital medicine team, (the primary care team), as well as the CF team. Our team follows patients in both the outpatient and inpatient settings to allow maximum continuity of care.

All patient rooms are private and are equipped with wireless internet access.

Emory University Hospital practices the highest standards of infection control for the safety of our patients.
