Dr. Elisabeth Chapaton-Rivard, a board-certified, fellowship-trained specialist in pulmonary disease and critical care medicine, has joined the staff at Beaufort Memorial Pulmonary Specialists.
At the Okatie practice, Dr. Chapaton-Rivard will use robotic and other advanced, minimally invasive techniques to diagnose and treat lung, airway and chest diseases and conditions, also managing patients with critical illness or injury in the hospital’s ICU.
She includes among her clinical interests the treatment of pulmonary fibrosis and the diagnosis of lung cancer at an early stage, when treatment for the disease is likely to be most successful.
Dr. Chapaton-Rivard came to the Lowcountry from Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Detroit, where as an assistant professor she taught courses in interventional pulmonology to medical residents, fellows and attending physicians while also working as an ICU hospitalist at area hospitals.
She earned a Bachelor of Arts in physical therapy from Oakland University in Rochester Hills, Michigan, and a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine from Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences. She completed her residency in internal medicine at Henry Ford Macomb Hospital in Clinton Township and a fellowship in pulmonary disease and critical care medicine at McLaren Oakland Hospital in Pontiac, both in Michigan.
