Keith Brenner, M.D.
Assistant Professor of Clinical Medicine
Dr. Brenner graduated from the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and performed postgraduate training at Columbia University Medical Center, completing residency in internal medicine and fellowship in pulmonary and critical care medicine.
Dr. Brenner’s focus is on providing excellent care to patients with pulmonary disease in the office and hospital setting. His clinical interests include interventional bronchoscopy, lung cancer screening, COPD, asthma, and interstitial lung disease. He participates in research studies of COPD treatment, bronchoscopic lung volume reduction for emphysema, and novel applications of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) as a treatment for respiratory failure.
