Pediatric Asthma

Asthma is the most common chronic disease in children. Thankfully, it’s also one of the most treatable. At Stanford Medicine Children’s Health, our team of experts works to correctly diagnose and treat children of all ages with mild, moderate, and severe asthma.

Asthma can often be misdiagnosed, but our team of pediatric pulmonologists—the largest in California—has decades of experience diagnosing and treating asthma in children. This means they can confidently diagnose and treat your child who is wheezing or has a chronic cough, whether they have asthma or another lung disease.

If your child is diagnosed with asthma, we will work with your child and family to control it from multiple angles. We use traditional and integrative medicine and environmental changes to help every patient live a healthy, happy life while managing his or her symptoms.
