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 top 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 475 lung transplant procedures.

Program Investment

  • The Emory Lung Transplant Program has added a dedicated lung transplant surgeon, Dr. Jeffrey Javidfar, and an additional transplant pulmonologist, Dr. Shahnaz Ajani, to our team. This has resulted in a significant increase in our transplant surgery capacity.

Survival Outcomes

  • Emory’s risk adjusted one-year patient and graft survival rates for lung transplant are where we are to be expected at 82.72% for patient and 82.66% for graft.
