Expertise and rankings

Mayo Clinic is a leader in pancreas transplantation, performing more than 50 each year.

Our surgeons are experts in helping people with complex health needs. These include people who need both a pancreas and kidney transplant, select patients with type 2 diabetes and treated HIV, and those who could benefit from islet cell transplantation. Islet transplants give you needed insulin-producing wells without removing your pancreas and are available only through FDA-approved clinical trials.

Mayo Clinic surgeons have performed hundreds of successful pancreas transplants since 1987 and contributed to the science of transplantation, making pancreas transplants safer and available to more people.

Pancreas transplant outcomes at Mayo Clinic compare favorably with the national average.
