Kidney Transplants

The Renal Care team and the Division of Transplantation Surgery at UAB have provided comprehensive care for transplant patients since 1968. During that time, over 500 pediatric transplants have been successfully performed, with outcomes above the national average. In March of 2013, the pediatric transplant services transitioned to Children’s of Alabama’s state-of-the-art Benjamin Russell Hospital for Children. Our newly approved Transplant Center continues to partner with UAB to provide excellent care. Our team consists of highly skilled UAB surgeons, pediatric nephrologists, dedicated nurses, transplant coordinators, social workers, nutritionists, child life professionals, pharmacists, and other specialists. Our experienced team performs the evaluation phase in our Transplant Outpatient Clinic and facilitates all aspects of care throughout the transplant process.
