Pancreas transplant procedures are performed at St.Vincent Transplant Services located within St.Vincent Indianapolis Hospital. A pancreas transplant – frequently in conjunction with a kidney transplant – can give individuals with Type I diabetes an opportunity undergo a vast improvement in their health and quality of life.
Although a successful pancreas transplant won’t cure Type I diabetes, it will greatly diminish its impact. The placement of healthy insulin producing cells from a donor pancreas by the St.Vincent Transplant team can greatly reduce and even eliminate some of the complications frequently associated with Type I diabetes.
A successful transplant eliminates the need for insulin injections and diet and activity restrictions – giving the transplant recipient a chance to live a life uninhibited by the rigorous demands of severe Type I diabetes.
At St.Vincent, people who need both a kidney and pancreas transplant will receive both from the same surgical team, creating a continuum of care that’s ideal for such procedures.
