Whether you have a common respiratory infection, a complex or advanced lung disease, or lung cancer, you’re likely to visit a pulmonologist.

Pulmonologists treat diseases of the lungs. With the help of advanced new technologies, they can look inside your airways to determine exactly what’s going on. And then help you keep on breathing.

Glenn VanOtteren, MD, a pulmonologist with Spectrum Health Medical Group, talks about specialized care for patients with asthma, COPD, cystic fibrosis, lung cancer and other conditions that affect your lungs.
