Our Quality Outcomes & Care

Emory Transplant Center is committed to providing excellent clinical outcomes and delivering outstanding service and medical care to our patients. Our expertise, combined with our highly ranked survival outcomes, allow us to provide patients with the highest level of experience and quality care possible.


  • In 1993, Emory established the only lung transplant program in Georgia, with the primary mission of serving Georgia residents suffering from otherwise untreatable complex lung diseases. To date, Emory has performed over 500 lung transplant procedures.

Program Investment

  • We are pleased to announce that Dr. Mani Daneshmand has joined Emory Healthcare as the Director of the Emory Heart & Lung Transplantation and Mechanical Circulatory Support programs. He will also serve as director of the Emory Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) Program.
  • With Dr. Daneshmand’s arrival, Emory’s heart and lung transplant, mechanical circulatory and ECMO programs will consolidate services into one comprehensive program, improving care coordination for patients and their families, and providing world-class transplant and life support services to the people of Georgia and the entire Southeast.

Survival Outcomes

  • Emory’s risk adjusted three-year patient and graft survival rates for lung transplant are higher than the expected. Our actual patient survival rate is 75.81% (the expected was 74.81%), and our graft survival rate is 75.74% (the expected was 72.41%).
