6. Lung Transplantation
Lung transplantation can sometimes be the only way to save someone’s life if they’re living with pulmonary fibrosis. This treatment can improve longevity and quality of life in patients who don’t have any other significant health problems. Years ago, lung transplantation was not available to individuals aged 65 or over, but fortunately with the recent surgical techniques and outcomes, more centers are performing transplants in individuals over age 65. Although this sometimes may be the only survival option, lung transplantation has its own risks so the patient should discuss all the details with a physician to decide if this is a viable option.
