The Transplant Team is a group of healthcare professionals who are here to assist you before and after your transplant. However, the most important part of the team is YOU. The success of your transplant is directly related to your compliance with the medications, clinic visits, and adherence to the rules set up by the Transplant Team. You must maintain a nutritious diet and keep a routine exercise program tailored to your physical abilities. Receiving a lung transplant is a lifetime commitment.
Our team includes doctors, surgeons, nurse coordinators, social workers, pharmacists, and a dietitian. To meet our team, click below:
On your first appointment you will meet with one of our Transplant Pulmonologists who will determine your candidacy for transplant, review your transplant evaluation and determine if you will be presented before the Transplant Committee. The Transplant Pulmonologists will also monitor your care before and after your lung transplant.
At the end of your evaluation you will meet with one of the Lung Transplant Surgeons. This is one of many surgeons that may perform your surgery and follow you during your immediate post-transplant period.
