Innovative Lung Care

We offer a full range of lung care services, from diagnosis and treatment through long-term management, including:


Sharing Our Advanced Expertise

One hallmark of a highly regarded, successful clinical program is the presence of a fellowship program — a program that trains doctors in a specialty area. El Camino Hospital and Palo Alto Medical Foundation, in collaboration with the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), have one of only 30 fellowship programs in the country in interventional pulmonology. We’re honored to share our expertise to train the next generation of specialists.

In collaboration with Foothill College, El Camino Hospital offers a Certificate of Achievement in Interventional Pulmonology for respiratory therapists seeking training in interventional pulmonology, an advanced specialty of lung care. Physicians at El Camino Hospital provide students with direct education and training, including diagnostic and therapeutic interventions.

In addition, El Camino Hospital is one of only two centers in the U.S. that trains doctors in bronchial thermoplasty, an advanced minimally invasive procedure to treat severe asthma. Our expertise has made us the designated training center for this procedure on the West Coast.
