Lung transplantation

A lung transplant is an operation in which one or two lungs are replaced by donor lungs. In our expertise center we offer top-level medical care to people who (possibly) qualify for a donor lung.

What does this center do?

In our expertise center we offer top-level medical care to people who (possibly) qualify for a donor lung. We work closely together with our other recognized lung centers in the field of sarcoidosis, interstitial lung diseases, pulmonary hypertension and cystic fibrosis. This is the strength of our patient care. Together we know and can do more than on our own. With advanced techniques we save time in patients who are in the final stages of their pulmonary disease. We work according to the latest scientific insights and are committed to the continuous improvement of our patient care. Our center for lung transplantation is recognized by the Dutch Federation of University Hospitals (NFU) as a center for top referral, highly specialized care.

Are you possibly eligible for a lung transplant? If so, we will be happy to be at your service and discuss together which care is best for you.

Visit

During the first visit to the outpatient clinic, the lung transplant physician will inform you in detail about the (im)possibilities of a possible lung transplantation. The lung transplantation nurse or the nursing specialist will then provide you with additional information. Together they will map out your medical history and state of health in detail. It is possible that the physiotherapist wants to do a 6-minute walking test with you in this initial phase. If desired, we will also take blood samples from you in advance.
