About UAB Medicine Transplant Services

Today, our nationally ranked hospital performs heart, lung, liver, kidney, and pancreas transplants, as well as multi-organ procedures. During this past half-century, the UAB Comprehensive Transplant Institute has pioneered many changes, including groundbreaking research, new medicines, and innovative techniques that we in turn teach to others.
