If you're suffering with a severe lung disease, you can find hope at UPMC's Lung Transplant Program in Pittsburgh.
Our compassionate and skilled lung transplant team cares for people each day with life-threatening lung diseases.
We're one of the most recognized and experienced lung and heart-lung transplant centers in the world. This means we're able to accept many high-risk patients for both single and double lung transplants that other transplant centers may decline.
After Mallory, a cystic fibrosis patient, was turned down by transplant centers across the country, UPMC gave her a life-saving double lung transplant. Learn more about Mallory's journey.
