The Washington University and Barnes-Jewish Lung Transplant Program offers a wealth of clinical and research experience and an array of valuable resources. In 1988, Barnes-Jewish became one of the first hospitals in the United States with a program fully dedicated to lung transplantation. The hospital also was the first in Missouri to perform a simultaneous heart and lung transplant.

Each person on the lung transplant team is an expert in a specific area of transplantation. Together, they bring their expertise, knowledge and understanding to each patient in our program.


Our Doctor's Access Line is easy and convenient to use. Physicians can reach one centralized resource, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
