Penn's multidisciplinary pulmonary vascular disease program includes both the Penn Lung Center and the Penn Heart and Vascular Center, allowing seamless integration of care and compassionate treatment for every condition.
Pulmonary vascular disease can be severe and difficult to treat. Treatment often includes leading-edge medical treatments and in some cases, advanced surgical therapies such as lung transplant. Pulmonary vascular physicians are also members of the lung, heart and heart-lung transplantation teams, providing seamless integration of care for those requiring this option.
Treatment teams include physicians and nurse practitioners who specialize in:
- Pulmonary medicine
- Cardiovascular medicine
- Critical care
- Cardiothoracic surgery
