Advanced Cystic Fibrosis Care to Keep You Healthy

If you or someone you love has cystic fibrosis (CF), you want prompt, expert care. At the USC Anton Yelchin Cystic Fibrosis Clinic, we work to create a treatment plan specific to your needs.

Our cystic fibrosis team includes pulmonologists, dietitians, pharmacists and other specialists, who work together to deliver complete care. Our experienced doctors and clinicians offer a wide range of treatment options, including:

  • Airway clearance techniques (ACTs)
  • Antibiotics
  • Dietary therapy
  • Exercises
  • Inhaled medications
  • Lung transplants from living and deceased donors

Why Choose Us for Your Cystic Fibrosis Treatment

Your care team carefully looks at the stage of your cystic fibrosis to design a treatment plan that will help you improve your symptoms and quality of life.

We are one of the few adult cystic fibrosis programs in the U.S. to offer lobar lung transplants from living donors.

We work closely with our cystic fibrosis patients to get their input and continually improve their care experience.

Our cystic fibrosis experts are leaders in research, providing you with access to clinical trials and innovative treatment therapies.

Our lung transplant program is designated as an Anthem Center of Medical Excellence.
