Experienced Pulmonary Health Specialists
El Camino Health’s pulmonary health team members include:
- Pulmonologists − Doctors who specialize in diagnosing and treating lung diseases and conditions.
- Interventional pulmonologists − Pulmonologists who’ve had extra training in procedures that use an endoscope — a flexible, lighted tube — and other tools to diagnose and treat lung conditions and diseases without surgery.

- Pulmonary nurse practitioners − Work closely with pulmonologists to treat and monitor people with lung conditions.
- Respiratory therapists − Provide diagnostic services and therapy to patients who have breathing difficulty due to lung conditions. They play a key role in providing care and education through our 2 BREATHE Program.
