Baylor Annette C. and Harold C. Simmons Transplant Institute at Baylor University Medical Center, part of Baylor Scott & White Health is one of the largest, most comprehensive multi-specialty transplant centers in the United States. Our lung transplant program offers sophisticated diagnostic testing and innovative therapies for patients with advanced chronic lung disease.
Since performing our first lung transplant in Texas in 1990, our team continues to be a leading force in lung disease treatment and outcomes. Baylor Dallas is not only home to one of the busiest adult extra corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) programs in North Texas, but also home to the region's only ECMO deployment program. Transplant outcomes at Baylor Dallas are excellent and one year survival rates continue to improve despite increased severity of illness in patients. Waitlist times continue to decrease as transplant volumes steadily increase.
Baylor Dallas is the top-ranked hospital in North Texas in pulmonology and continues to be ranked as one of America's top hospitals by U.S. News & World Report. We accept chronic lung disease patients with complex conditions that other centers may deny. In addition, we are actively involved in research to improve outcomes after lung transplantation.
Our experienced lung transplant team includes:
- Social workers
- Physical therapists
- Respiratory therapists
- Transplant pulmonologist
- Anesthesiologists on the medical staff
