Lung Transplant

Learn about UVA's approach, treatment options, and support therapies.

We’ve been performing lung transplants at UVA since 1990, extending and improving the lives of patients with end-stage lung disease. Our primary goal is to improve your quality of life.

Keys to Success

You’ll have a team of doctors, transplant coordinators, social workers, financial counselors and more working to ensure you receive the best care possible. We’ll work with your referring and primary doctor, who is an important member of your transplant team.

A Note to All Patients
The United Network for Organ Sharing provides a toll free patient services line to help transplant candidates, recipients and family members understand organ allocation practices and transplantation data. You may also call this number to discuss a problem you may be experiencing with your transplant center or the transplantation system in general. The toll free patient services line is 888.894.6361.
