A lung transplant can be a life-changing experience, but it requires a commitment to staying healthy. This means following a daily exercise routine, taking your medications according to schedule, attending all follow-up appointments, and abstaining from nicotine use. We will support you throughout the recovery process to help you achieve the best possible outcome.
If you are interested in making an appointment for an evaluation, please ask your pulmonologist to submit a referral.
Lung transplant surgery is performed at Duke University Hospital. Pre- and post-transplant appointments take place at our pulmonology clinics in Durham.
Where you receive your care matters. Duke University Hospital is proud of our team and the exceptional care they provide. They are why our pulmonology and lung surgery program is nationally ranked, and the highest ranked program in North Carolina, according to U.S. News & World Report for 2020–2021.
