Lung Transplant

About Our Lung Transplant Program

Patients who have received a lung transplant at UMMC or are approved for lung transplant at UMMC are invited to join our Heart & Lung Transplant Community on Facebook. Share the journey with other patients and caregivers who have received care at UMMC.

READ ABOUT A CLINICAL TRIAL THAT IS MAKING MORE LUNG TRANSPLANTS POSSIBLE BY REHABILITATING DONOR LUNGS BEFORE TRANSPLANTATION. 

The University of Maryland Medical Center's Lung Transplantation Program has saved the lives of hundreds of patients who received transplants. By replacing lungs which have ceased to function effectively, the program has given new life -- new energy and new possibilities -- to people whose lives had been restricted by debilitating conditions.

In addition, the lives of hundreds of other patients have been greatly improved by identifying other treatments that successfully postponed or prevented the need for transplant. For example, the University of Maryland Medical Center excels in caring for patients on ECMO while they await lung transplants. 

Patients with acute and chronic lung diseases benefit from the research and expertise provided as part of the University of Maryland School of Medicine's Lung Healing Program.

Patient Education Series

Patients and caregivers of patients who have been approved for lung transplantation at UMMC are invited to attend the monthly Transplant Patient Education Series to learn more about what to expect before, during and after transplantation. 

The lung transplant program can be reached for a consultation by calling 1-800-492-5538 (patients) or 1-800-373-4111 (physicians).
