The only coordinated, multidisciplinary program of its kind in Massachusetts, the BMC Bronchiectasis Program offers specialty care to diagnose and manage adult patients with bronchiectasis. Our unique care model helps reduce recurrent infections and treat symptoms of the condition with a focus on improving the quality of life of our patients.
Bronchiectasis is a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) characterized by permanent damage to the lung’s major airways. The condition is often concomitant with diseases such as cystic fibrosis, tuberculosis and immunodeficiency disorders. Comprehensive treatment of the condition’s underlying cause as well as management of its symptoms requires the expertise and communication of specialists from across disciplines, including allergy and immunology, clinical genetics, infectious diseases, otolaryngology, pulmonary disease and thoracic surgery.
We are proud to be setting a new standard of care for our patients. Our medical team is comprised of highly-trained physicians and the majority of our clinic areas are located in the Shapiro Ambulatory Care Center. When you come here for evaluation and treatment, you can rest assured that you will receive top-notch care from caring physicians and staff in an atmosphere specially designed for comfort and healing.
