Volumes and outcomes

Mayo Clinic doctors' experience and integrated team approach result in transplant outcomes that compare favorably with national averages. Teams work with transplant recipients before, during and after surgery to ensure the greatest likelihood of superior results.

Volumes and statistics are maintained separately for the three Mayo Clinic locations. Taken together or separately, transplant patients at Mayo Clinic enjoy excellent results.


The lung transplant program at Mayo Clinic's campus in Arizona opened in 2015. The addition of lung transplants at Mayo Clinic's campus in Arizona supports the long-standing success of transplantation care for patients across Mayo's three sites — Arizona, Florida and Minnesota.


The lung transplant program at Mayo Clinic's campus in Florida has become one of the largest in the Southeast. More than 500 lung transplants have been performed since the program began in 2001.


Mayo Clinic's campus in Minnesota has performed more than 210 lung transplants since the program began in 1990, including 20 heart-lung transplants. Mayo Clinic's outcomes with lung transplantation compare favorably with nationally reported survival rates.
