Meet Our Lung Transplant Team

Newark Beth Israel Medical Center

The decision to undergo a lung transplant can be difficult and overwhelming. We are here to help you every step of the way. As regional and national lung transplant leaders, we make sure you feel informed, confident, and empowered when making your treatment decision.

Lung Transplant Doctors

Our lung transplant specialists bring world-class diagnosis, treatment and support to patients close to home. They perform single and double lung transplants as well as manage chronic and complex lung diseases.

The primary goal of our lung transplant doctors is to identify suitable candidates for lung transplants; however, their comprehensive multidisciplinary evaluation can also benefit patients who are not transplant candidates.
