Lung Transplant

* We've designed this website to be a resource for patients.  We want patients to know their options and to be able to discuss those options with their doctor.  This website is not meant to replace the medical advice from a doctor or other medical personnel.  Our goal is to be a one-stop-shopping site for information, even if that means giving you links to other websites.  We don't want to reinvent the wheel, just to be a resource.

Lung transplants are a very serious operation.  They are considered as a last resort and they are dependent on organ donations.  Patients have to meet certain criteria to qualify for a lung transplant.

Patients can have one or both lungs replaced.

There are approximately 1,500 lung transplants in the US each year.
