Comprehensive treatments for lung conditions that help you breathe easier

Respiratory disease is a growing concern, with more people suffering from lung problems than ever before. The team of nationally recognized lung experts at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center can help you breathe easier, whether you have hay fever, a common virus or a rare genetic disorder.

The Ohio State Lung Center is the only comprehensive lung and pulmonary center in central Ohio. We’re also the only hospital in the region that performs adult lung transplants, and our Lung Volume Reduction Surgery Program was the first in the nation to receive a two-year certification of distinction from The Joint Commission, the group that accredits and certifies healthcare organizations in the United States.

Consistently recognized by U.S.News & World Report as one of the nation’s best hospitals in pulmonology, Ohio State has the resources, expertise and innovative clinical programs to better the lives of people living with lung conditions.
