Meet Three Oklahomans Who Received or Recovered from Double Lung Transplants During a Global Pandemic

A double lung transplant is a major operation that can involve many complications, even under the best of circumstances. Factor in a global pandemic, and the life-saving surgery becomes that much more challenging. But at INTEGRIS Health’s Nazih Zuhdi Transplant Institute, our medical professionals forged through the coronavirus crisis with amazing results.

In the videos below, you will see the success stories of three such patients. Wes Hawkins, Clifton Jobe and Lisa Caulley all received double lung transplants or recovered in the middle of the madness at the Nazih Zuhdi Transplant Institute, located on the INTEGRIS Baptist Medical Center campus.

Because they made the decision not to ignore their health or to let COVID-19 keep them away from the hospital, all three are enjoying a better quality of life today.
Now with more vaccinations and fewer infections, INTEGRIS Health encourages all Oklahomans to return to their pre-COVID medical routine. This includes preventative screenings like mammograms, colonoscopies and heart scans. It is also equally important to keep regular appointments with your primary care physician and specialists. 
It is time to put this historical health event behind us, and focus on our health and happiness going forward.
