The Vanderbilt Pancreas Transplant program is one of only two in Tennessee; we have been performing pancreas transplants for adults since 1989. Our team offers compassionate, advanced care when your pancreas can no longer produce insulin and other medical therapies stop working. We offer new hope when you need it most.
We work together to ensure that you receive the comprehensive care you need. Our team members collaborate with each other, as well as with experts in other medical disciplines, to provide you with individual care that addresses your unique needs.
Our researchers are dedicated to developing new and more effective approaches to care. We not only apply the latest research, but also pioneer some of the latest innovations. You may have access to treatments before they are widely available.
Our transplant center provides many support services, including social workers, transplant pharmacists and a dedicated nurse coordinator. They will guide you through the transplant process. We also offer a unique return-to-work program to help you resume employment and restore your emotional and financial well-being.
