Pancreas transplantation

About

Our pancreas transplant service provides between 15 and 20 transplants per year to patients in north west London.

We are also happy to receive patients from other parts of the country by personal or medical request. The vast majority of these procedures are simultaneous pancreas-kidney (SPK) transplants in which a pancreas transplant is performed in tandem with a kidney transplant.

Less frequently, a pancreas transplant may be performed following previous kidney transplantation, to treat diabetes-related complications.

We also offer pancreas transplant alone to treat severe low blood sugar-related complications of type 1 diabetes – please consult your diabetes specialist for further information.

Our team also provides outpatient transplant services at Hammersmith Hospital.

Additional information

We run a variety of patient education sessions – please speak to one of the clinical nurse specialists for further information.

Clinical trials and research

Our patients may be invited to take part in a study that contributes to the understanding of transplantation immunobiology, clinical outcomes and how to better facilitate successful and safe transplantation in both the short and long term.
