Our pancreas transplant surgeons performed more transplants in 2017 than any other year in our history. We specialize in solitary pancreas transplantation, combined kidney-pancreas transplantation, pancreas after kidney transplantation and pancreas surgery.

Successful pancreas or kidney-pancreas transplant recipients often return to living a normal lifestyle, free from insulin injections, dialysis and other diabetic complications. As a result, these patients can enjoy a more normal quality of life, greater activity and independence.

We also perform pancreas surgeries for patients who qualify. Successful pancreas surgery patients may be able to avoid a pancreas transplant.
