Transplant Program Advisor

It has been my privilege and passion to work in the life-changing practice of organ transplantation. During my exciting career, including 11 years as Director of the Lung and Heart-Lung Transplant Program and founder of the Center for Advanced Lung Disease at Stanford University Medical Center, I saw first-hand the amazing and challenging aspects of transplantation and its effects on patients and transplant team members.

Today, I help transplant hospitals navigate the complex transplant environment to reach optimal outcomes.

Transplant Community Advocate

It’s scary for anyone to hear the words, “you need a transplant.” But it’s just the beginning of a long and challenging journey. I provide timely information for patients, families, and transplant teams. I’m dedicated to helping all those on the journey find their way to success.

Questions to ask:

  • How many transplants have you done in the last year?
  • What is your 1 year survival rate? 3 year? 5 year? 10 year?
  • How long has the physician team worked together?
  • How long ago did the medical and surgical teams finish their training?
  • Will I be cared for primarily by a resident in training?
  • Will the nurse coordinator return my calls promptly?
  • How long is the average call back time?
  • What percentage of patients discharged from the hospital are sent home, as opposed to a long-term care facility?
