A Letter from
Steven Nathan, MD
Medical Director of Inova's Advanced Lung Disease and Transplant Program
On behalf of Inova Advanced Lung Disease and Transplant team, welcome. Transplantation is like no other procedure in terms of meticulous planning. Unlike popular TV shows, it doesn't happen overnight in hospital emergency rooms!
Our team carefully completes a series of important steps to ensure that patients are appropriate candidates and are well prepared for transplantation. This care and precision, we believe, is reflected in our higher-than-average survival statistics. Our most recent statistics show Inova lung recipients have the following survival rates: 1 month – 94.5%; 1 year – 88.38% and 3 years – 63.24%
We also believe education is a key component to the preparation process because patients who are better informed tend to deal with post-transplant demands more successfully. Knowledge is empowering and demystifying for both patients and their caregivers.
We hope you'll explore this site with your family and friends and contact us if you need more information. Referring physicians, you may contact us at any time.
