Lung Transplant Overview
For Medical Professional

A message from Dr. Arvind Kumar

Medanta Lung Transplant is the only program in the country where lung transplant services are offered by a team which has been doing cutting edge thoracic surgery for over 30 years. Lung transplantation is a life-saving procedure for patients who have reached end stage lung disease due to various reasons like interstitial lung disease, COPD, infectious diseases, pulmonary arterial hypertension, or a host of other diseases. When you see such a patient in your clinic and you think of a possibility of lung transplant, a lot of questions come to your mind before you decide to refer this patient to a transplant center.

Our team at Medanta, a lung transplant program, has thought of various questions which can come to your mind and has provided video answers to each of those questions, which are there at the end of this presentation. I encourage you to go through those videos which will answer most of the queries which may arise in your mind. Should you have a patient who needs lung transplant services?

I encourage you to reach out to us and will be very happy to be a cool partner with you in caring for patients who have reached end stage lung disease. You and we together can make their life better.

Thank you.
