CUIMC/NYP Bronchiectasis Center
The Bronchiectasis Center at Columbia University Irving Medical Center/NewYork-Presbyterian (CUIMC/NYP) provides exceptional comprehensive care for bronchiectasis patients. Our team has extensive experience diagnosing and treating different types of bronchiectasis and related conditions, including non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis and non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) infections.
Multidisciplinary Care from Leading Experts
Bronchiectasis can have many different causes—and that means that treatment is not the same for all patients. The center uses a multidisciplinary approach to develop carefully individualized therapy plans for each patient's unique condition. We collaborate with world-class specialists from across Columbia, including:
- Respiratory therapists
- Infectious disease consultants
- Thoracic surgeons
Access to the Latest Treatments
As part of CUIMC/NYP, we are active in research exploring new and innovative treatments and a better understanding of these diseases. We are currently one of several academic centers that maintain a Bronchiectasis Research Registry. We use the information collected in this registry to study these diseases and monitor patient outcomes over time. The registry helps us better understand patients with Non-Cystic Fibrosis Bronchiectasis and patients with Non-Tuberculous Mycobacteria (NTM) infections. The registry allows for easy identification of patients who may be eligible for appropriate clinical trials. Columbia is also conducting several clinical trials studying various treatments for bronchiectasis.
