UAB is home to the only liver transplant program in Alabama and has performed over 3,000 procedures since its launch in 1983. This volume has helped our program distinguish itself as one of the nation’s most experienced, with outcomes that consistently rank among the best in the United States, and we continue to overcome barriers to transplantation. We streamlined the transplant evaluation process and reduced travel burdens for patients who live far from UAB, and we provide comprehensive pre-transplant evaluations and post-transplant outpatient care at several satellite clinics in south Alabama and Tennessee.
