Making an impact through compassionate care, cutting-edge research and comprehensive education

The UAB Department of Surgery has a reputation for its unique blending of advanced medicine, patient care, research and education.

Concern for our patients drives our highly skilled surgeons to specialize in a broad range of surgical specialties, while our leading faculty produce superior outcomes in our diverse patient population.

This same concern also compels us to investigate new treatments and technologies and to research the surgical treatment of various disorders and diseases. And to advance the future of surgical care, we also focus on training the next generation of leading surgeons through our residency and fellowship programs.
