Pancreas Transplant Clinic

The The Connie Frank Transplant Center at UCSF provides care for patients seeking pre and post kidney and pancreas transplantation services. Patients needing a pancreas transplant suffer from Type 1 diabetes. Usually patients needing a pancreas are also in need of a kidney transplant. Patients who receive an auto-islet transplant after a total pancreatectomy (for acute pancreatitis) are also treated here.

Currently there are 1,000 waiting for a pancreas. Patients needing both a pancreas and kidney are over 2,000. You can maintain yourself current on this information by visiting UNOS.
