Where will I receive care after my lung transplant surgery?

After your surgery, you will receive care in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and then in the Step Down Transplant Unit. This unit is designated for all transplant patients. The staff in the Transplant Unit is experienced in meeting the unique needs of lung transplant patients and their families. Once you are stable and no longer needing ICU care, you will go to our transplant step down unit to learn more about your transplant and medications.
