Dr. James Brassard has the following 3 specialties

  • Pulmonary Disease

    A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
    These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
    Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
    Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Critical Care Medicine

    Also sometimes referred to as intensivists, critical care specialists are physicians with specialized training in the diagnosis and management of life-threatening conditions. Some of these conditions affect vital organs like the heart and lungs, those that make breathing difficult or impossible, and those that affect entire organ systems, like the renal system.
    Critical care specialists are typically found in a hospital's intensive care unit where they monitor patients with life-threatening conditions and make determinations as to the best course of treatment.

Total knee replacement

Dr. Brassard is either incompetent or a liar. replaced a knee that never worked correctly in therapy. Dr. Brassard preformed a second surgery to determine if knee parts were defective when the before and after x-rays show the the attached to the tendon of the quadriceps femoris muscle. This muscle contracts to extend/straighten the knee. The vastus intermedialis muscle is was attached to the base of patella prior to surgery but not attached after surgery. Regardless how and when this dislodged the diagnosis was obvious. The outer band to the hip was tighten a second time, for no reason, which now causes tremendous pain daily. It took 2 years of believing my mother was not trying hard enough before this discovery. Not even an apology was extended. No lawyers in the area would take this case due to her age and the Maryland court in Annapolis heavily favor doctors. An extremely active women is now disbled. The pain is too great for her to stand.An extremely angry family,
