At Baylor Scott & White Annette C. and Harold C. Simmons Transplant Institute, the lung transplant specialists deliver advanced care for patients with advanced lung disease. Our goal is to deliver the best organ transplant experience to all patients and get the thoracic transplant procedure to the right patient in the shortest possible time.
We work in a multidisciplinary environment that allows us to utilize innovative, advanced technology and industry-leading research for our patients with complex cases of advanced lung disease. Our expert medical and surgical team works with empathy, sensitivity and compassion to restore a quality, meaningful life to as many patients as possible.
As a referring physician, provider or colleague, you play an integral role in our mission. In this lung transplant newsletter, we provide an update on treatment for pulmonary hypertension, the evolution of referral criteria for lung transplant evaluation and considerations for lung transplantation in patients with chronic lung disease induced by COVID-19.
Please let us know how we can be of service to you and your patients, or if we can answer any questions you may have.
