Lung Transplant Surgery


What is Lung Transplant Surgery?

A lung transplant or pulmonary transplantation is a surgical operation in which a healthy lung of a donor partially or fully replaces the damaged lungs. This procedure is done to improve the overall health of a patient. However, lung transplant surgery has many complications along with the risk factors.
