Cystic Fibrosis Podcast 206: The Double Lung Transplant Surgery

In his latest video podcast, Jerry sat down with Dr. Joshua Sonett, Professor of Surgical Oncology, Chief of the Division of General Thoracic Surgery at Columbia University Irving Medical Center, and Director of The Price Family Center for Comprehensive Chest Care, Lung and Esophageal Center– and Jerry’s transplant surgeon! – to learn more about the transplant process and the work being done at CUIMC.

Some of Dr. Sonett’s most important advice for cystic fibrosis patients – make sure your CF care team works closely with a transplant team. Meet that transplant team early – way before you need a transplant. They can work with you and your care team to avoid the surgery as long as possible and to make sure that you are listed as soon as it becomes necessary.
