Lung Transplant Program

Since its inception in 1990, Boston Children’s Lung Transplant Program has improved the lives of hundreds of children with end-stage lung disease. Our team evaluates infants, children and adolescents who are potential candidates for a lung transplant, explores all treatment options and determines the best option for the optimal outcome for your child.

We work closely with Boston Children’s Division of Pulmonary and Respiratory Diseases, which includes programs and services such as the Interstitial Lung Disease Program, the Center for Healthy Infant Lung Development, the Chronic Pulmonary and Ventilator Program and the Cystic Fibrosis Center — one of the oldest and largest of its kind in the country. We also work with some of the cardiac programs, including the Pulmonary Hypertension Program and the Pulmonary Vein Stenosis team.
