nd on a talented team.”

The lung transplant program at Washington University and Barnes-Jewish Hospital continues to be one of the best in the world. Some of its many innovations include being the first program to use single lung transplant for certain conditions such as pulmonary hypertension. Additionally, Michael Pasque, MD, a Washington University cardiothoracic surgeon at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, and his colleagues developed the sequential bilateral lung transplant—the transplantation of each lung separately.

The pulmonary program, an integral part of the lung transplant program, has also been consistently ranked among the best in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. This week, it was named eighth in the country.

“One of the significant things that sets our program apart is our breadth of experience,” says Bert Trulock, MD, a Washington University pulmonologist and medical director of the Washington University and Barnes-Jewish lung transplant program from 1988 to July 2013. “Our staff has always had a strong commitment to patient care; many of these patients become almost like family. We get the opportunity to know them not only as patients, but as people.”

“We’re extremely proud of what the program has been able to achieve over the last 25 years and we look forward to another successful 25 years of providing the best possible care for patients with lung disease through transplantation,” says Dr. Hachem.
