Inova Lung Transplant Program

A national leader – the DC area's first and only lung transplant program

Inova pioneered lung and lung-heart transplants in 1991 in the Northern Virginia and Washington, DC metro areas and remains the only provider of lung transplantation in the region.

Our Lung Transplant Program, recognized for excellence and innovation, is located on the campus of top-ranked Inova Fairfax Medical Campus and has performed 500 lung transplants to-date. We routinely exceed national averages for transplants performed, waiting time, and patient survival rates, according to Scientific Registry for Transplant Recipients (SRTR) reports. Review our latest outcomes.

Our transplant surgeons and advanced lung disease specialists offer new hope to individuals dealing with serious life-threatening lung disease that once was considered untreatable. Our team coordinates every facet of your care during the transplant process, from organ procurement and transport to the actual surgical procedure, inpatient recovery, and the vitally-important recovery and rehabilitation process that continues for many weeks following transplantation.
