Kimberly Hardin: Finding the Right Program Makes a Big Difference
AUGUST 25, 2016
When patients are looking for a pulmonary rehabilitation center it is not enough to find anywhere that offers a program. Working with their doctors can ensure they find the help they need from the place best suited for their needs.
While there are local centers in many areas that can handle basic cases, Kimberly A. Hardin, MD, from UC Davis Health System said some will require more specialized care at larger centers which can also be found in many places around the country. One complication in the process is that many of the conditions cannot be "cured," unlike in other forms of rehabililtation. Hardin said one potential exception is for patients who receive lung transplants and are able to move past the procedure.
