UAB Medicine is one of fewer than 65 lung transplant centers in the nation and among the busiest, having performed some 785 lung and heart/lung transplants since our first over 25 years ago. Our program provides lifesaving care for serious lung diseases such as cystic fibrosis, emphysema, COPD, interstitial lung disease, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, pulmonary hypertension, and acute lung injury. We continue to make significant strides in improving patient access and connecting our pulmonary expertise with referring physicians. UAB is home to Alabama’s only ECMO program, helping advance research while serving as both a bridge to recovery and a bridge to transplant.
