Why Choose Loyola for Lung Transplant Care?

A successful lung transplant starts the moment you walk in the door. We are thorough in our testing and complete in our patient education. We will leave no question unanswered. Loyola’s doctors, nurse coordinators and nutritionists will ensure that you are in the best possible state of health before surgery and prepared for the next chapter in your life.

While you wait for a lung, you may face other health challenges related to your condition. Loyola’s subspecialists provide expertise in a wide range of health conditions, and your transplant team will facilitate a referral to an appropriate specialist if needed. 

Since Loyola’s lung transplant program started in 1988, we have performed more than 825 lung and heart-lung transplants. Our transplant pulmonologists and surgeons are widely regarded and highly experienced in treating the most challenging cases. In fact, Loyola is the only transplant center in the United States to perform five lung transplants in the span of a day, showing the dedication, drive and talent of our team. 

Whether you need a heart-lung, double-lung or single-lung transplant, Loyola’s highly skilled transplant team will provide the most advanced care. As part of an academic medical center, Loyola’s doctors perform and teach the latest surgical techniques and medical practices. Our transplant team is often consulted by doctors at other hospitals because of their expertise and experience. We would welcome offering you a second opinion.
