Medical and Surgical Directors
The Lung Transplant Program at the Cooley Transplant Center at Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center has been performing successful lung and heart-lung transplants since the 1990s.
Lung transplants may be recommended for patients with severe end-stage lung disease caused by emphysema, cystic fibrosis, chronic diseases such as sarcoidosis, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (permanent scarring and thickening of lung tissue), pulmonary hypertension or congenital diseases. After a thorough evaluation, recommendations may include either single lung transplant, double lung transplant or heart and lung transplant.
