World Leader in Disorders of the Diaphragm

Caring for a wide range of conditions

The Diaphragm Center, under the direction of surgeon Mark Ginsburg, and pulmonologist Keith Brenner, is the leading center in the world for the treatment of diaphragm disorders, with a steadily growing patient volume and outstanding outcomes. 

“Ours is the first multidisciplinary program to address weakness and paralysis of the diaphragm,” says Dr. Ginsburg. “Our patients are cared for by an expert team of neurologists, radiologists, pulmonary and thoracic surgeons, who, offer the latest minimally invasive treatments.”

Conditions addressed at the Center include:

  • Diaphragm paralysis and weakness
  • Congenital central hypoventilation syndrome (CCHS) 
  • Central hypoventilation syndrome
  • Hypoventilation related to quadriplegia
  • Diaphragmatic hernias (congenital and acquired)
  • Paraesophageal hernias

Untreated, dysfunction of the diaphragm can lead to significant respiratory compromise.
