Pancreas Islet Cell Transplant


In 2003, the BC Pancreatic Islet Transplant Program performed the first pancreatic islet transplants in British Columbia. The goal of the program was to provide an opportunity for diabetic patients to receive a pancreatic islet transplant, and to contribute to the research and advancement of the islet transplant field.


  • You must be a BC resident and have a Personal Care Card Number
  • Referrals (for either islet with no previous kidney transplant; or islet after kidney transplant) to the BC Pancreatic Islet Transplant Program may come through either the 'Best Care' Diabetes Program at Vancouver General Hospital, from a referring endocrinologist or from the Renal Transplant program
