The Institute for Better Breathing provides comprehensive and innovative treatment for pulmonary (lung) conditions and diseases. Pulmonary or respiratory disease encompasses a wide variety of disorders which generally fall into one of the following categories: obstructive disorders (asthma, bronchitis and emphysema), restrictive disorders (fibrosis or lung lining diseases), infectious disorders (pneumonia), cancer, diseases of the lungs' blood vessels, and disorders of sleep.
