Making a Referral for a Lung or Heart-Lung Transplant

We offer effective long-term treatments for advanced lung failure.

If a patient has severe lung disease, it’s important to be referred for a comprehensive evaluation of the condition as soon as possible. A primary care physician, lung specialist (pulmonologist), or heart specialist (cardiologist) can refer patients to the Miami Transplant Institute for a transplant evaluation. Patients can also contact our team directly to schedule an appointment.

Our lung transplant team can draw on the comprehensive resources of Jackson Health System to provide multidisciplinary care—an important consideration because patients’ medical condition may affect other organs as well as the lungs and heart.

Medical Conditions

There are many conditions that can lead to lung failure and require a life-saving transplant, including:

  • Interstitial lung disease
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Pulmonary fibrosis
  • Pulmonary arterial hypertension
  • Bronchiectasis
  • Emphysema
  • Sarcoidosis
  • Congenital lung disease
