Treatments & Capabilities

Our experts in pulmonology provide a wide range of treatment capabilities for the respiratory system. Their work is supported by our affiliation with University of Michigan Health, one of the nation’s leading pulmonology programs.

Conditions treated include:

  • COPD (bronchitis and emphysema)
    • Zephyr Valve: A minimally invasive option for patients with severe COPD or emphysema. Doctors place a small valve in the airways to allow healthier parts of the lungs to expand and ease breathing. Patients must meet certain criteria to be eligible for the Zephyr Valve. Ask your primary care doctor or pulmonologist. You also can schedule an appointment by calling 616.252.5220 or by sending a message through MyChart.
