The Pancreas Transplant program has completed more than 300 pancreas transplants. Although this may seem to be a modest number, it denotes substantial experience given the relative rarity of the procedure among national institutions.
Our pancreas transplant program is an essential component of a broad medical and surgical strategy to manage all patients with Type 1 Diabetes with the therapy most appropriate to that patient. The program is a member of the Ohio Solid Organ Transplantation Consortium (OSOTC) and the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS), meeting all their requirements for pancreas transplantation.
For information on our transplant outcomes, please visit the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR) website.
Do you need of a second opinion?
If you or a loved one would like a second opinion from a top specialist at Cleveland Clinic, but find it too difficult to travel or may be disabled, we offer MyConsult. The MyConsult program is an online medical second opinion that connects you to our physician experts who will review your medical records and diagnostic tests to assess your suitability for transplant.
