The Transplant Process
All of us associated with Inova's Lung Transplant Program recognize that the prospect of a lung transplant is both intimidating and overwhelming for patients and their families. We want you to be informed and prepared.
Your transplant team works together to coordinate every facet of your care during the transplant process, from organ procurement and transport to the actual surgical procedure, inpatient recovery, and the vitally-important recovery and rehabilitation process that continues for many weeks following transplantation.
In this section of the website you can learn about each of the important steps before and after lung transplant. Simply click on any of the links on the left side of the page.
Because we want you to be as knowledgeable as possible, we also include statistical information on survival rates and explanations of potential post-surgical complications. In addition, we provide information regarding the educational and support services available to you and your family as you navigate this complex and challenging time.
Equally important, we want you to call upon us if you have any questions about this information. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
