UAB Medicine has maintained an active cardiac transplantation program since 1980, and we have performed some 1,180 heart, heart/lung, and heart/kidney transplants since that time. Our diverse team of specialists is equally committed to treating heart failure through optimizing medical management and expanding the role of mechanical circulatory support devices. When a transplant is needed, our outcomes are excellent; UAB’s one-year and three-year patient and graft survival rates are better than the expected rates and U.S. averages. Patients can expect a wide range of support and educational services designed to ease concerns and promote more successful outcomes.
