Pancreas transplants are offered to patients with type 1 diabetes and to patients with insulin-dependent type 2 diabetes if they are not overweight.
A successful pancreas transplant leads almost immediately to insulin independence with normalization of hemoglobin A1C levels. It can also stop or even reverse some of the secondary diabetic complications. As a result, the patient’s quality of life is greatly improved, multiple daily blood sugar measurements and insulin injections are no longer required and there are no more hypoglycemic episodes.
Our dedicated transplant team is committed to guiding you safely through the transplant process. Our goal is to make you insulin-free and non-diabetic. We will take the time to explain to you and your family the various options available for your pancreas transplant.
