Pulmonologists at University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital offer excellent care for children with chronic lung diseases. We work with a multidisciplinary team to provide your child with the newest, most effective treatment options available. For example, our Minnesota Cystic Fibrosis Center is a Cystic Fibrosis Foundation accredited care center and has been a world leader in treating children with cystic fibrosis for more than 50 years. Our survival rates are among the highest in the world.
If your child’s condition progresses to advanced, end-stage lung disease, he or she may be a candidate for a lung transplant. The University of Minnesota has pioneered many lung transplant procedures, including the first breathing lung transplant in the Midwest. Today, we have the largest lung transplant program in the region, and our patient survival rates are significantly higher than the national average.
