How does one enter the lung transplantation program at BWH?
Let your primary doctor know of your interest, and ask him or her to arrange a referral for a transplant evaluation. You can also call(617)732-7269 and ask to speak with the Transplant Coordinator or submit an appointment request form over the web. An appointment will be scheduled; you will be asked to bring relevant medical records and x-rays with you. After your evaluation, a letter will be sent to your primary doctor informing him or her of the results and requesting any further information that is needed. After you are examined and your medical condition reviewed, you will have the opportunity to discuss transplantation and its implications with members of the Lung Transplant Team. It is often helpful for any interested relatives to attend at least one meeting with the transplant team. We feel strongly that you and your family should be as fully informed about your lung transplantation as possible.
