Adult Cystic Fibrosis Program
Medical Director: A. Purush Rao, M.D
The Adult Cystic Fibrosis Program of the USC Comprehensive Cystic Fibrosis Center provides direct care or consultation for adults with cystic fibrosis. Outpatients are seen at the USC Ambulatory Health Care Center and inpatients are hospitalized at the USC University Hospital. The multidiscipline cystic fibrosis care team is headed by pulmonologists supported by a full range of consultants, including diabetologists, gastroenterologists, otolaryngologists, infectious diseases experts, general surgeons and cardiothoracic surgeons. Allied health services are provided by pulmonary clinical nurse specialists, dieticians, clinical social workers, physical therapists, occupational therapists and respiratory therapists. State-of-the-art therapies are offered, and there are gateways to research protocols and lung transplantation. The usual hours for outpatient appointments are Friday afternoons, but patients will be seen at other times as necessary.
