The Lung Transplant Center at Banner – University Medical Center Phoenix provides comprehensive pre- and post-transplant care from our highly specialized and multidisciplinary lung transplant team.
This team is made up of transplant physicians, transplant surgeons, nurse coordinators, social workers, nutritionists, pharmacists and financial counselors. We coordinate care based upon the patient’s needs as well as those of the family, and we work to ensure they have access to their designated transplant specialists throughout the entirety of the transplant process.
The Lung Transplant Center’s philosophy is rooted in providing personalized education and support of our patients and their families. Throughout the transplant journey, patients are provided detailed information about the lung transplant process and life after transplantation.
They are supported through each phase of transplantation, including:
- Evaluation and testing
- The waiting list
- Transplant surgery
- Care after transplantation
In addition to the individualized education, patients and families have access to transplant-specific support groups that are facilitated by members of the multidisciplinary care team.
