Two-Time Lung
Transplant Recipient

Patient Testimonial - Emory Transplant Center

Joseph McCanne, a two-time lung transplant recipient at Emory Transplant Center, describes his experience growing up with cystic fibrosis and his path to undergoing transplant surgery at Emory University Hospital -- twice. Only 4% of lung transplants performed in the United States are re-do transplants. The vast majority of lung transplant centers do not perform these due to the high technical expertise that is required at the time of surgery. Emory's Lung Transplant Program saved Joseph's life twice.
