Outstanding transplant center
Highly skilled doctors and surgeons in the Transplant Center at Mayo Clinic in Arizona performed more than 200 pancreas transplants since the program opened in 2003 — the highest number of simultaneous kidney and pancreas transplants annually in Arizona.
Having kidney and pancreas transplants at the same time benefits people with Type 1 diabetes whose kidneys have failed and who require dialysis. A pancreas transplant is sometimes performed following a successful kidney transplant.
