Kidney & Pancreas Transplant Program
The UAB Kidney Transplant Program is a leader in both living-donor and deceased-donor procedures. We’ve also taken a lead role in transplants between incompatible donor-recipient pairs and for those with HIV. Average wait times are down across all blood types, thanks to our streamlined evaluation process and efforts to make more donor kidneys available to patients. Our Pancreas Transplant Program is distinguished through pancreas-after-kidney and simultaneous pancreas/kidney transplants in suitable patients. Both programs are widely recognized for major advances in immunosuppression protocols, research, surgical techniques, organ access, and convenient telehealth services.
