Our Adult and Pediatric Kidney-Pancreas and Pancreas Transplant Program

If complications from diabetes have led to pancreas or kidney failure, these complex surgeries can save your life.

A Recognized Leader

If you are an adult whose diabetes has resulted in end-stage kidney disease, you may benefit from a kidney-pancreas transplant or the separate transplantation of both organs. A donor kidney will enable your body to filter wastes from the blood, while a donor pancreas can produce insulin, improving your health and reducing the long-term complications of diabetes.

Miami Transplant Institute is a recognized leader in these complex procedures:

Which Procedure is Best for You?

Most patients who need a new pancreas undergo a kidney-pancreas transplant at the same time. Usually, both organs come from the same donor and can be transplanted in one procedure. But if you have a functioning kidney—either your own or from a prior transplant—you may benefit from a pancreas-only procedure called a pancreas after kidney transplant. You might also be able to receive a kidney from a living donor and a pancreas from a deceased organ donor.

In addition to being a potentially life-saving procedure, a kidney-pancreas transplant can significantly improve your quality of life. Eventually, you may not need to take insulin, and other complications from diabetes, such as slow wound healing or digestive problems, may stabilize or even reverse.
