Experts in Care and Evaluation

Through new discoveries and ongoing improvement, Cincinnati Children’s Lung Transplant Program is committed to ensuring the best possible outcomes — positive experiences, valuable treatments, compassionate and effective care — to our patients and their families.
Evaluation, world-class treatment and cutting-edge research for children who have cystic fibrosis, pulmonary hypertension and rare lung diseases.

Conditions We Care For

Our Lung Transplant Program treats chronic and end-stage lung disease which may arise from these, and other, common conditions:

  • Cystic fibrosis (CF)
  • Chronic lung diseases where other treatments no longer work
  • Interstitial lung disease
  • Pulmonic vascular congenital heart diseases
  • Bronchopulmonary dysplasia or chronic lung disease (CLD)
  • Pulmonary hypertension (PH)
  • Heart disease or heart defects affecting the lungs
  • Pulmonary fibrosis
  • Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency (ATT deficiency)
  • Surfactant Protein Deficiency
  • Bronchiolitis Obliterans

Teamwork is Vital

You will meet many people during the evaluation process. Each person is dedicated to your and your family’s needs, but serves a different role in the transplant process — from financial specialists and social workers to physical therapists and pediatric psychologists.

We want to make sure you have the support you need to feel comfortable throughout the whole experience.

Our Mission Statement

The mission of the Lung Transplant Program is to ensure the best possible outcomes as defined by patient experience and value for children who undergo lung or multi-organ transplant by application of new discoveries and continuous improvement to provide compassionate and effective care.
