Ascension Medical Group Providence Lung Clinic

Ascension Medical Group Providence Lung (formerly Waco Lung Associates) cares for pulmonary disorders like COPD, asthma, emphysema, lung tumors and other respiratory illnesses. The care team is specially trained in advanced lung procedures and participates in a tumor board which takes a multidisciplinary approach to lung cancer treatment. They are the only group in Waco offering: bronchial thermoplasty, helping minimize the frequency, severity of asthma attacks for severe asthma sufferers; endoscopic lung reduction, placing valves in airways to help severe emphysema patients breathe easier; the placement of fiducial markers improving radiation treatment for lung tumors; less invasive lung biopsies, available soon, allowing doctors optimal navigation and accuracy through robotic-assisted technology. This team of doctors also cares for patients in the ICU at Ascension Providence hospital. Ascension Providence is the only hospital in Waco to have a critical care doctor onsite in the ICU 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For patients, families and surgeons like general surgeon, Dr. David Hoffman, “it’s comforting to know there is a competent, excellent physician at the bedside.”
