General Pulmonology

Pediatric pulmonologists and nurse practitioners with expertise in evaluation and management of pediatric lung diseases (i.e. asthma, chronic cough, wheezing, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, recurrent pneumonia, neuromuscular weakness, and shortness of breath).

Cystic Fibrosis Center

Certified by the national Cystic Fibrosis Foundation as a care, teaching and research center, the CF center of WNY includes both pediatric and adult programs for patients with non-acute respiratory diseases (care is provided to adults by internal medicine-certified specialists).

The Cystic Fibrosis Therapeutic Development Center has participated in more than 40 clinical trials and has helped bring several drugs through development to clinical use for patients with CF, focusing on inhaled antibiotics, mucoactive drugs and CFTR potentiators and correctors.

Assisted Breathing Center

We evaluate and manage children who need breathing assistance through use of CPAP, BiPap, mechanical ventilation, cough-assist devices and other therapies to improve airway clearance.

We work closely with the MDA Clinic in providing respiratory care of children with neuromuscular disease.

We have the only New York State-designated Apnea Program in Western New York and provide management for children who are discharged home on oxygen, apnea and bradycardia monitors.

The UBMD Pediatrics Sleep Center at Oishei Children’s Hospital is the only dedicated pediatric sleep program in Western New York. We provide a comprehensive and systematic approach to the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric sleep disorders. A family-centered focus ensures our team works directly with you to develop a plan of care that best addresses medical needs while also maximizing wellness and quality of life.
