Dr. Mona Luke-Zeitoun is a pediatric pulmonologist in the Pediatric Pulmonary Division and the Pediatric and Congenital Cardiopulmonary Exercise Laboratory. She specializes in the evaluation and management of exercise problems, such as shortness of breath, in young athletes and children with various medical conditions. Early recognition of airway diseases in athletes is essential in preventing distress, decreased performance and long-term damage to airways. Luke-Zeitoun's goal is to help young athletes and chronically ill children exercise safely, optimize their performance and improve the prognosis of their underlying conditions.
Luke-Zeitoun's research focuses on the mechanisms of exercise-induced asthma in athletes and the effectiveness of exercise interventions in children with chronic disease. Recent research demonstrates the diagnostic and therapeutic benefits of exercise for chronic medical conditions, including asthma, cystic fibrosis, kidney disease, bowel disease, arthritis and cancer.
Luke-Zeitoun completed a medical degree from the University of Zurich, Switzerland, followed by a scholarship at the Children's Exercise and Nutrition Centre at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada. Subsequently, she completed a residency in pediatrics at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford University and pediatric pulmonary fellowship at UCSF, where she is a clinical instructor in the Division of Pediatric Pulmonology.
Luke-Zeitoun is a member of the American College of Sports Medicine, American Academy of Pediatrics, American Thoracic Society and American College of Chest Physicians, among other professional organizations. She has received numerous prestigious awards, including the International University Sports Federation Young Researcher Award, the Prematurity and Respiratory Outcomes Program Scholar Award, and the CHEST Foundation California Chapter Clinical Research/Medical Education Award. Luke-Zeitoun speaks German, French and Italian.
