For Referring Physicians
At UPMC, we make the referral process easy. We'll help you manage your patient's expectations by explaining the lung transplantation process — from selecting candidates to providing post-transplant care.
To refer patients for lung transplant evaluations at UPMC’s Cardiothoracic Transplantation Program:
- Review the transplant referral checklist.
- Provide all patient and referring physician information listed on the checklist.
- Mail, fax, or e-mail demographic and clinical summaries, along with patient records, to the UPMC lung transplant team at:
Cardiothoracic Surgery -- Lung Transplantation
UPMC Presbyterian, Suite C-900
200 Lothrop St.
Pittsburgh, PA 15213
Attn: Lung Transplant Coordinators
Or, call the 24-hour physician referral line at 1-800-544-2500.
