In 1995, University Transplant Center performed the first kidney/pancreas transplant at a civilian hospital. Our physicians and surgeons use innovative techniques to successfully treat patients in pancreas failure caused by complications with diabetes and other diseases. Our medical expertise consists of evidence-based practices helping restore optimal health to patients in organ failure.
Our physicians, nurses, pharmacists, social workers, dietitians and other health care professionals evaluate a patient to determine the best plan of care to meet their specific needs. Whether a combined kidney and pancreas transplant is performed or a pancreas transplant alone, our patients and their families benefit from our strong history of research, education, innovation, comprehensive medical expertise and surgical excellence.
