In the 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.
People with pulmonary hypertension, complex congenital heart diseases such as Eisenmenger syndrome or other heart conditions may be candidates for a heart-lung transplant. In this procedure, surgeons replace your heart and lung with a donor heart and lung.
Surgeons trained in all areas of transplantation have experience and expertise treating people with complex conditions who may need heart-lung, lung-liver and lung-liver-heart transplant surgery. In addition to multiorgan transplants, surgeons can perform other procedures at the same time as transplant surgery when necessary.
