‘Third Time’s the Charm’ for Indianapolis Woman After Third Lung Transplant at Duke

Only 23 people have undergone three double lung transplants in the U.S. as of February 2024. Thirteen of those were performed at Duke Health. Jennifer Weber of Indianapolis is one of them. 

For most of her life, Weber has lived with cystic fibrosis, a condition that damaged her lungs and other organs. Her first and second transplants were performed in Indiana. After she experienced signs of rejection for the third time, her doctors told her to go to Duke where doctors have performed more than half of the third lung transplants in the U.S. After a year-long recovery, Weber, 50, is back to playing cello in the symphony and just signed up for a mini-marathon.

Fortunately, some warning signs can signal when you should seek care. Duke Health neurosurgeon Andrew B. Cutler, MD, a specialist in identifying and treating brain aneurysms, explains what they are and when you should see a doctor.
