Integrated care of people who need lung transplants

Mayo Clinic doctors and other staff in many areas work as an integrated team to provide comprehensive care to people who need lung transplants.

Mayo Clinic doctors trained in transplantation, lung and breathing conditions (pulmonologists), infectious diseases, heart and blood vessel conditions (cardiologists), chest surgery (thoracic surgeons), heart and blood vessel surgery (cardiac surgeons), anesthesiology, and other areas may be involved in your care. Many other health care professionals may be involved in your lung transplant care.

In the Mayo Clinic Transplant Center, lung transplant surgeons work with surgeons trained in other types of transplantation to perform heart-lung transplant surgery or other multiorgan transplant procedures.
