Expert Care at the Pediatric Lung Transplant Program

We believe the best results happen for children when families, patients and a healthcare team work together.

The Cincinnati Children’s lung transplant team strives to provide personal evaluations, world-class treatment and cutting-edge research for pediatric patients with complex and challenging end-stage lung diseases and conditions.

We work closely with our End-stage Lung Failure Program in caring for patients with acute and chronic end-stage lung disease and evaluating for lung transplantation.

Why Cincinnati Children's?

At Cincinnati Children’s, a personalized approach is put in place for each patient — from the initial contact all the way through each phase of care — based on the child’s condition, family dynamics and the education and support needed. Once your journey begins, we are wholly committed to helping you, your child, and your family in having a positive and successful experience.

There is nothing we can say to make this journey less scary, but if you, your family and your child do decide to move forward with a transplant — we will be with you every single step of the way. Your family becomes a part of our family, and we will do everything we can to support you.

Our dedicated program staff includes physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, respiratory therapists, social workers, dietitians and child life specialists with robust core medical, surgical and nursing knowledge with specific pediatric lung transplantation experience.
