What We Do

Patients who may benefit from lung transplantation are initially seen by a doctor in the Lung Transplant Clinic to discuss lung transplantation as a treatment option. If appropriate, a full assessment then takes place to see if transplantation would be a good treatment.

Our multidisciplinary team includes: respirologists, anesthetists, thoracic surgeons, nurse practitioners (NP), transplant coordinators who are registered nurses, social worker, psychiatrist/psychiatric nurse, physiotherapist, nutritionist, and other specialists when necessary.

Transplant candidates and their family members are provided with information, so they can make an informed decision about whether transplant surgery is the right option for them. Patients continue to visit the Lung Transplant Clinic while they are on the waiting list, and received specialized care from our team in the Lung Transplant Clinic after their lung transplants.
