As part of a multidisciplinary clinic along with Pulmonary Medicine, Thoracic Surgery and Thoracic Radiology the IP service at BIDMC is one of the few centers in New England performing endoscopic lung volume reduction as part of an industry sponsored trial for patients with severe emphysema/COPD.

The Chest Disease Center’s new chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) Clinic provides multidisciplinary evaluation and treatment of patients with advanced COPD/emphysema. Interventional pulmonologists are integral members of the COPD Clinic team, which also includes thoracic surgeons, pulmonologists, and other health care providers throughout BIDMC.

The COPD and Emphysema Clinic at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) is a leader in multidisciplinary treatment of lung diseases.
