At MGH, the lung transplant program was founded in 1990 and was the first Medicare-approved lung transplant program in New England. The IP service provides support in the management of transplant related airway complications.
Our major milestones include:
- Performing New England’s first living related lung donor transplant
- Establishing New England’s first live donor lung transplant program in 1995
We perform transplants from both living and deceased donors and maintain the region’s largest Living Donor Program.
The Lung Transplant Program at the Massachusetts General Hospital Transplant Center brings together state-of-the-art technology and leading-edge medical and surgical interventions to provide patients with individualized care before and after their lung transplants.
