Pulmonary Vascular Disease

The team at Cedars-Sinai is at the forefront of research and advanced treatment for pulmonary vascular disease, including pulmonary hypertension. The close ties between the Lung Institute and the Heart Institute mean patients have access to the most advanced diagnostic techniques and specialized care, including the more than a dozen medications our doctors have been a part of getting approved.

High blood pressure in the lungs is difficult to diagnose. It is important to see a specialist if you are lightheaded, tire easily or have chest pain.

Many of the physicians who have medical staff privileges to practice medicine at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center are independent physicians, and not employees or agents of the hospital. These independent physicians bill separately for their services. You should contact your physician to determine their status and billing practices.
