CHOP’s Pulmonary Hypoplasia Program (PHP) provides multidisciplinary, long-term care to children with conditions that limit lung growth resulting in pulmonary hypoplasia. Comprehensive pulmonary hypoplasia treatment involves coordination between many specialists. The PHP team works together to improve your child’s pulmonary health, evaluate neurodevelopmental growth, monitor and treat any surgical issues that arise as your child grows, meet nutritional needs, monitor for late onset hearing loss, help locate resources and support services near your home, and more.
