As the largest lung transplant center in the nation, the lung program at the Methodist J.C. Walter Jr. Transplant Center continues to lead the way in lung transplant outcomes and decreased wait times.

In 2012, our surgeons performed 143 lung transplants—three times our total from just a few years ago—and our one-year survival rates are excellent at a projected 82.55%.

And there’s another number we’re especially proud of: 95.36% of our lung transplant patients rate our service as “exceptional.” To learn about our current transplant clinical trials, click here.
