Helping you to breathe easier

Respiratory specialists at The London Clinic treat a wide range of respiratory and lung disorders from persistent coughs and asthma to lung disease and lung cancer. We also have a team of thoracic surgeons who offer open and minimally invasive surgery for conditions that affect the lungs.

Diagnosis and treatment using the latest technology and techniques are available for common and non-life threatening respiratory conditions:

Many conditions can cause a cough so it is important to find out precisely why a cough has developed and the reasons why it might persist.

These may affect people of all ages including otherwise healthy young people. Having an underlying condition such as asthma may also increase the likelihood of more frequent chest infections.

An increasingly common problem, it can lead to daytime tiredness, concentration difficulties and more chronic complications including cardiovascular disease.

These include common conditions such as asthma and bronchitis.

These disorders are varied in nature and often arise after the lungs have been damaged in some way. This can happen as a result of side effects of drugs, exposure to environmental toxins such as asbestos, following a respiratory infection or as a consequence of a connective tissue disease such as rheumatoid arthritis.

Our Duchess of Devonshire Wing is fully equipped with all the diagnostic and treatment facilities for treatment of all types of tumours that can affect the lung.

Decreased cardiac function can lead to a build-up of fluid on the lungs, sometimes very acutely. It is important to treat this promptly and to exclude heart attack or an abnormal heart rhythm as a precipitating cause of the heart failure.
