What Sets Us Apart

Asthma is a common, chronic disease characterized by inflammation and swelling of the airways in your lungs. Asthma may have any of a number of triggers, including dust, pollen, or fumes, as well as medical conditions such as gastroesophageal reflux disease and chronic sinusitis.

At NYU Langone, our doctors work closely with you to identify what may be triggering your asthma symptoms and help you find ways to manage the condition over the long term. Our pulmonologists, or lung specialists, work closely with other physicians, including allergists, to create an effective care plan. 

Our doctors also provide treatment for asthma in children.

Treatment at NYU Langone

Treatment for asthma may include lifestyle modifications to avoid triggers, along with medication to lessen symptoms.
