Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
The Cystic Fibrosis–Gastroenterology clinic is held monthly and staffed by Doug Lindblad, MD, a staff gastroenterologist. Dr. Lindblad is available for consultation for problems including liver disease, constipation, gastroesophageal reflux and uncontrolled malabsorption. The clinic will work in concert with our nutritionists and other staff.
The Cystic Fibrosis–Endocrinology clinic is held monthly, and staffed by Luigi Garibaldi, MD, and Selma Witchel, MD, staff endocrinologists. Drs. Garibaldi and Witchel are available to see patients with CF-related diabetes and impaired glucose tolerance, and will be assisted by CF diabetes educators and nutritionists.
Genetic counselors from the Division of Medical Genetics are available for counseling families with a history of cystic fibrosis. Jacquelyn M. Hoover, MS, CGC, and Marianne McGuire, MS, serve CF clinics in Lawrenceville by appointment. To schedule an appointment or learn more, contact Medical Genetics at 412-692-5317.
Patients who are able to cooperate (usually 5–6 years of age) perform “voluntary” tests at each office visit. In order to get an objective assessment of lung function in infants and toddlers, specialized tests can be performed and were developed for young children with CF. This testing requires sedation and more time than standard testing.
Ask your CF doctor for more information. If you have questions, please contact the PFT Laboratory at 412-692-5452.
