Respiratory medicine is concerned with the treatment of all lung diseases. Our Respiratory physician, Dr Creer, sees patients with a vast range of pulmonary and non-pulmonary conditions and deals with a wide spectrum of conditions:
- airway (asthma, COPD, obliterative bronchiolitis).
- allergic, sleep-related, neuromuscular,
- inherited (eg cystic fibrosis)
- infective and inflammatory (eg pneumonia, TB)
- malignant (eg lung cancer, mesothelioma, mediastinal tumours)
- vascular (eg pulmonary embolism, primary pulmonary hypertension)
