Lung Transplant and Advanced Lung Disease

Lung Transplant and Advanced Lung Disease

Your lungs help you breathe. When they become damaged, you have lung disease. If lung scarring has occurred, it is usually irreversible. Medications may slow the progression of disease, but you may not regain full use of your lungs. For many people with severe lung failure, a lung transplant can be a lifesaving option.
