UW Health Pancreas Transplant App

Our new app makes it easy for you to facilitate a referral for patients with insulin dependent diabetes who may benefit from pancreas transplant.

 

Why transplant?

 

Pancreas transplant can delay or prevent secondary diabetes complications such as nephropathy, neuropathy, retinopathy, coronary artery disease and other vascular complications. Insulin-dependent diabetic patients who are in kidney failure are candidates for simultaneous pancreas/kidney transplant, or pancreas after kidney transplant. Those who are insulin-dependent diabetics and experience hypoglycemic unawareness may be pancreas transplant candidates.

 

Why choose the UW Health Pancreas Transplant Program?

  1. Patients listed at our program are more likely to get a pancreas transplant, compared to others in the region
  2. We have the shortest wait times in the Midwest
  3. Our excellent outcomes exceed the national average
  4. Experience matters! Our team performs more pancreas and simultaneous kidney-pancreas transplants than any program in the nation
