Pancreas Transplant Program
Nationally-Recognized Pancreas Transplant Program
The Emory Kidney-Pancreas Transplant Program in Atlanta, Georgia provides evaluation, treatment and follow-up care for patients with Type 1 diabetes and renal disease. Combined kidney-pancreas transplants provides many Type I diabetics with kidney failure a life-improving option as compared to daily insulin injections and dialysis therapy. Kidney-pancreas transplantation, though not considered a cure, can greatly improve the length and quality of life for many transplant patients.
Our Georgia kidney-pancreas transplant center ranks among the most prestigious transplant programs in the country, and our team of kidney-pancreas transplant specialists are highly skilled in kidney-pancreas transplant surgery. We will work with you every step of the way to ensure superior care and service.
