Patient Education

Welcome to the UCSF Lung Transplant Program's patient education! In this section, we have provided educational materials for lung transplant patients, caregivers, and their families which we hope are beneficial in preparing for the lung transplant process. We hope that by closely examining this material, you become more knowledgeable about lung transplant candidacy, surgery, recovery and lifestyle changes after lung transplant.

Please feel free to share this page with your family and friends to help better prepare for transplant.

For any questions or concerns please contact your coordinator at (415) 353-4145.
