The DC area's first and only lung transplant program
Inova pioneered lung and lung-heart transplants in the Northern Virginia and Washington, DC, metro areas. The first lung transplant was performed at Inova Fairfax Hospital in 1991.
Today Inova remains sole provider of the region's only lung transplant program, with patient survival statistics above the national average.
Specialized care for advanced lung disease
We also offer Advanced Lung Disease Clinics to provide highly specialized evaluation and treatment for serious lung disease. Our clinical experts at Inova Advanced Lung Disease and Transplant Program continually seek out and implement the latest treatment techniques. These advancements may delay or forestall the need for a lung transplant or offer treatment options to patients not eligible for transplantation.
