To be eligible for a pancreas or pancreas islet transplant, you must be a BC resident with a Personal Care Card Number.
Once referred, you will undergo a variety of physical and psychological tests and examinations. All patients who are evaluated for pancreas transplant are strongly encouraged to pursue all living-donor kidney transplant options.
The routine assessment includes consultation with the members of the transplant team comprised of a transplant nephrologist, transplant surgeon, clinical coordinator, social worker, dietitian and psychologist. If required, appointments will also be arranged with specialists from other disciplines.
