Facts and Figures

Our division is a leading referral center for patients with advanced lung disease and the critically ill.

Highlights of our division include:

  • We maintain one of the busiest lung transplant programs in the United States. Our waiting times are the shortest in the country and our survival rates consistently beat the national averages.
  • Duke Center for Hyperbaric Medicine and Environmental Physiology is the only hyperbaric facility in North Carolina accredited by the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society and the first in North America to receive accreditation "With Distinction." It is also the only facility in the state staffed with physicians who are board-certified in the specialty of hyperbaric medicine.
  • Collaborative relationships with a wide variety of research programs and care facilities throughout North Carolina increase opportunities for our researchers, students, and clinical physicians to learn about and treat pulmonary disease.
