Interstitial Lung Disease Program
The Interstitial Lung Disease Program at Boston Children's Hospital consists of an expert team of physicians, surgeons, nurses, nutritionists and social workers who assist in the care of children with interstitial lung disease.
Our multidisciplinary team provides a full diagnosis and evaluation of each child with interstitial lung disease. We work with families to plan individualized therapy depending on the specific condition. Our goal is to offer the best care of the child’s respiratory health, growth and nutrition. Additionally we provide education about pediatric interstitial lung disease and family support. If indicated, we also assist in arranging home health care support and supplies, transportation services, and visiting nursing services.
In addition, the Division of Respiratory Diseases provides expert review and opinion, as well as other services and support, for lung transplantation.
Our Interstitial Lung Disease Group is a part of the Children's Interstitial Lung Disease Research Network (ChILDRN) associated with the Children's Interstital Lung Disease (ChILD) Foundation.
