UAB doctors give patients second chance at life during winter storm through 16 kidney operations
During the height of last week's winter storm, some UAB doctors decided not to go home but instead chose to stay at the hospital and give others a second chance at life. Physicians and staff in UAB's transplant unit stayed three days and nights at the hospital to perform sixteen kidney operations. That included eight kidney donation procedures, and eight kidney recipient operations.
