The UW Health pancreas transplant program has performed more than 1,600 transplants, making it one of the largest and most active in the nation.



People who have diabetes, but good kidney function, may qualify for pancreas transplant. People with diabetes but do not have good kidney function may qualify for a combined kidney and pancreas transplant.


Some patients might first have a Kidney Transplant, usually from a living donor, and then receive a new pancreas at a later date. In rare cases, patients receive pancreas transplants without the need for a kidney transplant.
