Why choose UCLA for patients who need Lung or Heart-Lung Transplant?

Experience. We are the largest program in our region and one of the busiest in the nation, giving us a depth of experience that few centers can match.

Complex cases. We routinely and successfully transplant patients turned away by other centers, including those in need of multi-organ transplants or concurrent cardiac interventions like CABG or valve replacement.

ECMO as a "bridge" to transplant. For patients who decompensate while awaiting transplant, we are able to offer the most advanced life support modalities. We have successfully bridged dozens of patients to transplants using ECMO, with outcomes far exceeding national averages. 

Outstanding outcomes. Despite our extremely complex patient population, our survival statistics consistently exceed national averages and are the best in our region. Please refer to the SRTR website for our publicly reported results.

Leading-edge research. UCLA is at the forefront of basic, translational and clinical research focused on improving outcomes for lung transplant recipients.
