Center for Advanced Lung (CEAL) Therapies

Through innovative procedures and treatments, our Center for Advanced Lung (CEAL) Therapies gives children with serious pulmonary hypertension (high blood pressure in the lungs) or late-stage lung disease their best chance at surviving and feeling better while they await lung transplant.

As the only advanced lung therapy center on the West Coast, we’ve brought together heart and lung specialists and subspecialists under one roof to provide in-depth, groundbreaking solutions for your child. If your child has advanced pulmonary hypertension but has a healthy heart, we can often put off transplant with a Potts shunt—a surgical procedure that improves circulation, helping your child feel better and live longer. Because of our care team’s unique blend of expertise, we are one of the few places in the country where a program of this caliber and depth can exist.
