Lung Transplant

This page is under construction.

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.
