Outstanding Coordinated Care
We pinpoint the underlying cause of your asthma symptoms and work with specialists throughout Duke to manage the conditions that may contribute to poor asthma control. That includes ear, nose, and throat specialists if your asthma is worsened by chronic sinusitis, allergists and immunologists if you have allergic rhinitis or immune deficiency, and sleep disorder experts if you have sleep apnea. We ensure you receive the best care across all of the appropriate specialties.
Personalized Approach to Asthma Care
The underlying cause of asthma can be different in each individual. We use advanced techniques to identify what type of inflammation you have in your lungs and tailor your treatment to your needs. We also give you access to omalizumab (Xolair) -- a targeted therapy for severe asthma that's only available at specialized centers like ours.
Leaders in Advancing Asthma Care
We were involved in the clinical trials that led to FDA approval of thermal bronchial thermoplasty to treat severe persistent asthma. We were one of the first centers in North Carolina to offer this technology.
Access to Clinical Trials
You may be eligible to participate in our clinical trials, which test new medications and therapies. We also study asthma at the cellular level in order to individualize treatments.
