International reputation for pioneering treatment
The Freeman has earned an international reputation for its pioneering expertise in transplant surgery for both adults and children. In 1987 surgeons performed the UK’s first successful heart transplant for a child at the Freeman hospital and the hospitl is one of Europe’s leading lung transplant centres, having performed both the first single lung transplant and the first double lung transplant in Europe.

One of the Freeman’s latest innovations is the “mechanical heart” service, which was launched in 2003, and is able to keep adults and children alive until a suitable donor heart can be found.
