Our Approach to Treating

Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis in Adults

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is a rare and serious condition that causes scar tissue to develop in the lungs, which leads to difficulty breathing. At NYU Langone Pulmonary and Critical Care Associates, our pulmonologists, who specialize in lung conditions, and pulmonary rehabilitation experts collaborate to help you manage this condition. 

NYU Langone’s Rusk Rehabilitation ranks as one of the best rehabilitation centers in the nation. Our physical therapists and exercise physiologists work closely with you to alleviate symptoms and maintain your quality of life.

Treatment for Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis in Adults

There is no cure for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, but NYU Langone specialists can offer supportive therapies that make breathing more comfortable. Treatment may include medication, as well as oxygen therapy and pulmonary rehabilitation.
