Texas Children's Lung Transplant Program is among the largest pediatric lung transplantation programs in the world and leads the nation in performing the most lung transplants each year. Our program is one of only two institutions performing over 10 pediatric lung transplants per year.

With a median wait time of less than four months, it offers a shorter wait time than most other pediatric programs. Texas Children's highly experienced, multidisciplinary team has transplanted lungs in children from all areas of the United States.

The physicians and staff of Texas Children's Lung Transplant Program are committed to providing patients with excellent medical care, honest and timely communication and multidisciplinary team care. Our team of experts has transplanted lungs in children from all areas of the country and successfully used extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) as a “bridge” to sustain a patient until a suitable donor becomes available. We are committed to providing expert pediatric care to every patient we serve.

Through quality improvement and clinical research, our mission is to make the outcomes of the future even better than they are today.
