CARE PROVIDERS

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS

One of the most active in the nation, the UAB Lung Transplant Program generates one-year patient and graft survival rates that are better than the expected rates and U.S. averages. We provide lifesaving care for cystic fibrosis, COPD, emphysema, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, pulmonary hypertension, and other serious lung diseases. We are helping develop new cystic fibrosis drugs that could reduce the need for lung transplant. UAB’s role as a leading lung transplant center is enhanced by our 20-year-old extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) program, the only one in Alabama.
