Exceptional lung and pulmonary care in a convenient and comfortable environment

The Ohio State Lung Center is the only comprehensive lung and pulmonary center in central Ohio. Serving as the outpatient clinic for the Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care & Sleep Medicine, the Lung Center includes leading-edge research, state-of-the-art clinical programs, courteous one-on-one care and a full slate of services in allergy, sleep and pulmonary medicine.

Innovative Surgeries

We’re the only hospital in central Ohio that offers lung transplants for adults. Our surgeons performed Ohio State’s first lung transplant in 1998 and the first double lung transplant the following year. Our Lung Volume Reduction Surgery Program can give patients with emphysema a renewed lease on life, improving their lung capacity by removing diseased parts of their lungs.

A Talented Team

The Ohio State medical staff has expertise in such diverse lung and pulmonary conditions as emphysema, lung cancer, asthma and alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency (a rare inherited disease that raises the risk for lung and liver disease). Our team includes faculty physicians, pulmonary, allergy and sleep medicine fellows, and specially trained nurses and nurse practitioners.

A Growing Clinical Trial Program

Our clinical trials generate new knowledge and give our patients access to the latest groundbreaking therapies. We actively recruit people to join our programs. Our patients have expressed a high degree of satisfaction after participating in our trials, citing educational benefits as the best part of the experience. We also have a robust basic science research program.

Helpful and Convenient

We offer free parking, timely appointments and in-office allergy shots and testing at the Martha Morehouse Medical Plaza, 2050 Kenny Road, Columbus, Ohio.

Immunosuppressed Patients

Your immune system may become suppressed as a result of common treatments for cancer, arthritis or rheumatologic disorders. HIV and organ or bone marrow transplantation can suppress the immune system, too. The Ohio State Immunosuppression Clinic helps patients with suppressed immune systems, which often can involve the lungs. If you’re having lung problems and have a suppressed immune system, ask your doctor about a referral.

Pulmonary Hypertension

The OSU Pulmonary Vascular Disease Clinic focuses on conditions such as pulmonary hypertension, along with other lung disorders. We have an active research program to bring the latest drugs and innovative approaches to patients. We also provide multidisciplinary, state-of-the-art services to meet the unique needs of individuals. This clinic is located at the Ross Heart Hospital.
