Cystic Fibrosis Centers
The Lung Center collaborates closely with our affiliated adult and pediatric Cystic Fibrosis Centers located across New Jersey, as well as other cystic fibrosis centers and referring pulmonologists. Accredited by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, our centers provide state-of-the-art care to monitor every aspect of the disease.
Regular follow-up care is vital to maintain optimal quality of life. Frequent assessment of lung function and nutritional status help facilitate earlier intervention. Following the recommended clinical guidelines, patients are seen at least every three months for pulmonary function tests, sputum or throat cultures and consultation with our multidisciplinary team to discuss any concerns and review the current plan of treatment. Referring physicians receive updates on their patients’ status as well as any recommendations.
