Pancreas Transplant

PRE-TRANSPLANT:

Patients requiring a pancreas transplant will receive their pancreas either simultaneously with a kidney from the same deceased donor (SPK) or following a prior living-donor kidney transplant (pancreas after kidney, PAK). All patients who are evaluated for pancreas transplant will be strongly encouraged to pursue all living-donor kidney transplant options.

ELIGIBILITY:

  • You must be a BC resident with a Personal Care Card Number
  • You must be referred by a specialist or family physician to the Pancreas Transplant Team at Vancouver General Hospital, in Vancouver
