Our Lung Program provides diagnostic, treatment and follow-up services for people like you who have a broad spectrum of pulmonary issues. Consistently recognized by U.S. News & World Report as a high-quality provider, we are widely known for our expertise in addressing pulmonary symptoms, conditions and diseases. These can range from chronic cough to chronic lung disease, such as cystic fibrosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and pulmonary fibrosis.
 
For those with advanced, end-stage lung disease that requires state-of-the-art medical care or a life-saving lung transplant, our service is uniquely equipped to provide an optimum continuum of care.

Programs and Services
Our Lung Program's excellence is evident throughout its varied clinical programs. Here are two examples:
  • Our highly regarded cystic fibrosis program, one of the largest in the nation, is nationally recognized for patients’ positive clinical outcomes, including a longer lifespan.
  • We have the largest lung transplant program in the region. Our patient survival rates are significantly higher than the national average. In addition, we provide total lung care including disease and disorder diagnosis, treatment and follow-up.

Our expert physicians are skillfully trained and attuned to the latest in care innovations and offer patients clinical trial participation as appropriate.

Research and Education
University of Minnesota Medical Center is the main teaching hospital of one of the most respected educational institutions in the nation: University of Minnesota Medical School. Patient care is our primary focus, which complements the medical school’s mission of improving the health of Midwestern families and communities through discovering and delivering new treatments and cures. As a result, our patients have access to innovative treatments, technology and services, all while receiving superior care. These innovations have led to many medical breakthroughs, including the world’s first successful open-heart surgery, the world’s first bone marrow transplant, the Midwest’s first successful double-lung transplant and Minnesota’s first living donor pediatric liver transplant.
