Lung Transplant Program
Your lifetime wellness partners for lung transplantation
To complement an already strong heart transplant program, Scott & White performed the first lung transplant in Central Texas in late September 2012.
The Scott & White Lung Transplant Program brings together the collective expertise of specialists with extensive experience in transplant surgery and medicine. Our multidisciplinary, integrated team approach to patient care is ideally suited to the complex problems presented by lung transplant patients.
Scott & White is now the only lung transplant program between Dallas and San Antonio after receiving the designation in January 2012 from the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS), the national organization that oversees transplant programs. Each month 1600 people nationwide are on the waiting list for a lung; the waiting list in Texas is 160 patients long.
The integrated lung transplant team is comprised of surgeons, pulmonologists and pulmonary rehabilitation experts.
