Dr. Paul J. Wolters specializes in the diagnosis and care of patients with interstitial lung disease, a category of disorders in which scarring of lung tissue affects breathing.

Wolters is actively involved in research that aims to better understand the development of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, a type of interstitial lung disease. He is director of biological research for the UCSF Interstitial Lung Disease Program.

Wolters received his medical degree from the University of Minnesota. He completed a residency in internal medicine at the University of Colorado, and a fellowship in pulmonary and critical care medicine at UCSF. He joined UCSF's division of pulmonary and critical care medicine in 1999.

"Fibrosis is a big problem. If you improve people and slow the progression of their disease...that’s a success."

Please check with your health insurance plan regarding coverage for this type of care. Not all providers at UCSF are covered by every insurance plan.
