129 lung transplants in 2017
Cleveland Clinic's lung transplant program is an essential component of a broad medical and surgical strategy to manage all patients with pulmonary disease.
In the last five years, Cleveland Clinic has proven to be a national leader in lung transplant, both in terms of patient volumes and successful outcomes. The transplant program has established a reputation for accepting and transplanting challenging, complex patients, which has led to our high referral rate.
Our secure online service, DrConnect, provides referring physicians access to patient’s treatment progress with streamlined communication from Cleveland Clinic physicians to your office, allowing continued participation in the ongoing care of patients. With the best possible treatment plans and coordinated care, our team approach benefits both the patient and the referring physician.
