PULMONARY AND INTERNAL MEDICINE
Consultations related to diseases of the chest
Dr. Wm. Wayne Hooper maintains a special interest in cardiopulmonary diseases such as pulmonary embolic disease, pulmonary hypertension and right heart failure. Patient with obstructive lung disease (COPD, emphysema, chronic bronchitis, and asthma) are encouraged to be evaluated. In addition, patients with shortness of breath, cough, wheezing and abnormal chest X-rays or CT scans of the chest are frequently assessed. Interstitial pulmonary fibrosis or other diseases resulting in restrictive lung disease, such as diseases of the thorax ( kyphoscoliosis, pectus excavatum, etc.) or diseases of the lung itself (pulmonary fibrosis, pneumonia, pleural effusions, lung masses or pulmonary nodules) are all part of Dr. Hooper's practice.
