Comprehensive Transplant Institute turns 50.

UAB Medicine has completed more than 14,000 successful organ transplants since 1968, when our team performed Alabama’s first kidney transplant. 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. We are proud of our 50 years of transplant expertise, but we also recognize that success in our business means saving lives. And that’s always something to celebrate.
