Lung Transplant Resources

Lung transplant specialists at the NSHA  Respirology Clinic work to assess patients with advanced lung disease pre-transplantation and provide follow-up care post-lung transplantation in collaboration with the patients’ lung transplantation center (predominantly Toronto).


Where do lung transplants happen?

There are four lung transplant centers in Canada that perform lung transplants. The centers are located in Vancouver, Edmonton, Toronto and Montreal. Individuals from Nova Scotia who require lung transplant surgery must relocate to Toronto for the procedure. To be approved for out of province travel the patient must have a signed physicians recommendation. For more information on out-of-province procedures, air travel and transplant information please see the documents below. Should you have any questions please call our toll-free number 1-888-566-5864 for more information.
