Stanford’s Center for Advanced Lung Disease is one of a few in the country providing specialty care for patients with cystic fibrosis, interstitial lung disease, emphysema, pulmonary hypertension, advanced cardiopulmonary diseases, and lung transplant. Since performing the first successful heart-lung transplant more than thirty years ago, our team of pulmonary experts continues to develop innovative strategies for the treatment of advanced lung disease.
Your doctor will request an evaluation by one of Stanford's transplant specialists, who will review your previous medical records and determine if additional tests are necessary. Patients undergoing initial evaluation, medical follow-up before transplant, and post-transplant follow-up, both early and late, are seen in the liver transplant clinic.
To learn more about our outreach locations, call the Outreach Clinic Central Office at 650-725-1988.
We are committed to maintaining regular communication with referring physicians, including sending all records regarding consultation and outpatient clinic visits, as well as a summary of Liver Transplant Selection Committee minutes.
