Pediatric pulmonology in Indianapolis
Pediatric pulmonologists at Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at Ascension St. Vincent have advanced expertise in diagnosing and treating respiratory conditions in babies, children and teens. Using our dedicated pulmonary function lab, we are able to quickly diagnose even the most complex respiratory conditions. When you choose Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital for your child’s care, your child will have a care team of pediatric pulmonologists, respiratory therapists, sleep medicine specialists, hospitalists, child life specialists and more.
Each appointment starts with a conversation with you and your child about their breathing. Ask us your questions – big and small. Together, we discuss your child’s diagnosis, therapeutic treatment options and ongoing care. Then, we create a care plan that’s right for your child and family.
Diagnosing pediatric respiratory conditions
Our goal is to help your child breathe comfortably. That’s why our care team specializes in rapidly diagnosing respiratory conditions, including:

- Congenital malformations in the lungs and airway (abnormal tissues that form in a baby during pregnancy)
- Cystic fibrosis
- Lung infection, including pneumonia
- Pulmonary hypertension
- Obstructive sleep apnea
If your child’s condition is related to another health concern, your child’s care team works with pediatric specialists at Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital. Together, we deliver care that focuses on the whole child.
