Cystic Fibrosis Podcast 210: The Future of Double Lung Transplants

Jerry Cahill and 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! – discuss the future of lung transplants.

In this video podcast, Dr. Sonett shares his view that the future is bright. His goals through his work are to optimize lung availability, change public perception of organ donation, eliminate the need for anti-rejection medication, and helping patients see transplant as a positive step.
