Your Lung Transplantation Team

Our multidisciplinary lung transplant team specializes in exceptional care, education, and support for people with advanced lung disease. The extended care team includes specially trained nurses, transplant coordinators, and other providers who support and guide you through the transplant process. We update your referring physician about your status during treatment at Stanford Health Care and transition your care back to them afterward.

Infectious Disease Specialists

Infectious disease specialists are doctors who diagnose, treat, and help prevent diseases caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. People who receive organ transplants must take medications that suppress the immune system (immunosuppressants) to help prevent organ rejection. Immunosuppressants increase your risk of developing infections, and an infectious disease specialist helps minimize that risk.
