  • Alternative ventilation – Helps you breathe
  • Cardiopulmonary stress test – Measures the activity of your heart and lungs while you exercise

Your care plan also may include Cone Health’s pulmonary rehabilitation program, which provides education, exercise and breathing training to control and alleviate symptoms and complications of pulmonary disease.

If surgery is the best treatment option for your lung condition, you’ll benefit from the skills and experience of CHMG cardiac and thoracic surgeons.

24/7 ICU Care

When you choose a pulmonologist from LeBauer Pulmonary, you’ll get care when you need it most. In 2007, we became the first pulmonary medicine practice in North Carolina to offer 24/7 physician monitoring of the intensive care unit. That means if you’re admitted to Moses H. Cone Memorial Hospital, Wesley Long Hospital or Women’s Hospital, your pulmonologist will get complete, real-time information about your health. So you’ll benefit from early detection of emerging conditions, extremely rapid response, more accurate treatment and a shorter hospital stay.
