For best care our experts are there to help you

What is a lung transplant surgery?

A lung transplant surgery is a procedure performed to replace a diseased or damaged lung with a healthy lung, usually from a deceased donor. The most common lung diseases for which people undergo lung transplant are:

  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (emphysema and chronic bronchitis)
  • Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension
  • End-stage lung cancer

A donor for a lung transplant  is an individual who may have recently died or become brain dead, which means that although their body is being kept alive by machines, the brain has no sign of life.
