Information about our Pancreas Transplant Program

Pancreas transplantation is performed for select patients with insulin-dependent diabetes and is usually done in combination with a kidney transplant for those patients with kidney failure due to their diabetes. This procedure allows patients to be free of insulin injections, dialysis and further complications of diabetes, including eye and nerve problems.

The first combined pancreas/kidney transplant was performed in Hawaii in 1993 and since that time, over 30 such transplants have been performed by our surgeons and staff.
