Background information on Surgery of the Pancreas [When available]

A pancreas transplant is an organ transplant that involves implanting a healthy pancreas (one which can produce insulin) into a person who has diabetes. Typically, the recipient's existing pancreas is not removed. The healthy pancreas comes from a donor who has just died or from a living relative. A person can donate half a pancreas and still live normally. At present, pancreas transplants are usually performed in persons with insulin-dependent diabetes who have severe complications. This is because after the transplant the patient must take immunosuppressive drugs that are highly toxic and may cause damage to the body; for a majority of diabetics, a lifetime on insulin is a better option.
