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.
